AQs Shorts: Leandro-Vergara Camus/Alice Soares Guimarães/Kees Jansen

This AQs Shorts interview draws on our Special Issue on Autonomy in Agrarian Studies, Politics and Movements, edited by Leandro Vergara-Camus and Kees Jansen. The two editors and a contributor to the special issue, Alice Soares Guimarães, reflect on the limits and possibilities of autonomy as an agrarian strategy. They highlight the different meanings of the term ‘autonomy’, its fraught relationship with the state and the market, and the challenges in studying it methodologically.
