Democratising Agricultural Research describes itself as "an initiative that questions the often narrow interests of agricultural research. Focussing on four regions aiming to make the voices of small scale producers and other excluded citizens heard — and count — in the governance and process of agricultural research".
It was initiated by a non-governmental organisation/charity and researchers, scientists & educators and encourages people to participate through research & learning. Democratising Agricultural Research is transnational in orientation and concerned with environment & sustainability; research, knowledge production & information access; and science governance.
It was launched in 2007 and is ongoing.
