The Agrarian South Network is a tri-continental network of researchers in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, with an interest in land, labour, and agrarian questions and the political economy of world development. The Network was born in 2002 by the initiative of Professor Sam Moyo at the African Institute for Agrarian Studies (AIAS) in Harare, Zimbabwe, in collaboration with public universities and non-governmental partners. The Network was consolidated in 2012, with the launch of our periodical journal, Agrarian South: Journal of Political Economy.
Today, the Network promotes an array of regular research activities, including a Summer School, a Training Institute, a Dialogue Series, and a Study Group, and publishes a bimonthly Research Bulletin and two Book Series. It also organizes the annual Sam Moyo Memorial Lecture and awards, via the journal, the Samir Amin Young Scholars' Prize in Political Economy of Development.
