Spaces and ethics in the Common Agricultural Policy
Abstract: The “moral turn” in Geography, recognized by David Smith in 1997, is now established in geographical research, articulating in the different approaches of investigation. It has also encouraged studies on ethical choices in agricultural practices, crop and livestock farming; such studies are demonstrating, for example, important changes in the distributive patterns of agriculture, in terms both of sale of products, and in consumption. We propose to examine the Common Agricultural Policy in ethical terms, and to consider their effects in the choises of farmers and consumers.
Keywords: Geography and ethics, Common Agricultural Policy, Multifunctionality.
