Workshop

Nutrition and Democracy: Precarious working and living conditions for seasonal workers in German agriculture

A discussion of the politics and policies surrounding seasonal agricultural work

Ernährung und Demokratie: Prekäre Arbeits- und Wohnbedingungen von Saisonarbeiter*innen in der deutschen Landwirtschaft

This bilingual event, with German and English simultaneous translation, will discuss Germany agriculture's longrunning reliance on seasonal migrant labour. This theme has been subject to rare attention during the COVID-19 pandemic, with the government adopting new measures to attempt to prevent labour shortages, but a fundamental improvement of working and living conditions for workers was not generally considered. This discussion addresses the conditions under which migrant seasonal workers work and live in German agriculture. It will reflect on current developments and challenges at the national, EU and global levels, and discuss political demands for fair working conditions.
