The Initiatives in Critical Agrarian Studies (ICAS) is a community of like-minded scholars, development practitioners and activists from different parts of the world who are working on agrarian issues.

It responds to the need for an initiative that builds and focuses on linkages, and advocates a mutually reinforcing co-production and mutually beneficial sharing of knowledge. ICAS also promotes critical thinking and engaged research and scholarship.

ICAS aims to:

  1. Produce and disseminate cutting-edge knowledge in agrarian change studies.
  2. global knowledge networks for ‘pro-poor agrarian change’.
  3. Facilitate mutually reinforcing interactions around the issue of pro-poor agrarian change.

It is based at the International Institute of Social Studies (ISS), The Hague, Netherlands. Learn more about ICAS.
