The 59th Annual Conference of the German Society of Economic and Social Sciences in Agriculture (GEWISOLA) was held from

Wednesday, 25 September to Friday 27 September 2019

at the Thünen Institute in Braunschweig (Germany).

The local organizers were the Thünen Institute for Farm Economics, for Rural Studies and for Market Analysis.


The conference theme was:


"Agriculture and rural areas in the course of societal change"



Nothing is more constant than change. And every change causes new challenges. Important drivers change over time and previously neglected topics start dominating economic, political and societal discussions.
