Abstract

The two volumes are a follow-up on two earlier books on “EU policy for agriculture, food and rural areas” edited by Arie Oskam, Gerrit Meester and Huib Silvis. This new edition has maintained some of the structure of the previous ones but has been largely revised and partly written afresh. Additional chapters on the European Union (EU) bioeconomy and circular economy policies as well as on bioenergy policies have been added. The part on rural areas has been expanded by including tourism. In general, the chapters are short and descriptive in nature to provide the reader with information about the current state of policies and underlying motivations.
