The Global Countryside: Rural Change and Development in Globalization (Global-Rural)

The Global Countryside: Rural Change and Development in Globalization (Global-Rural) was a major research project based at Aberystwyth University in Wales that ran from 2014-2019. As its name suggests, this project examined the myriad effects that globalization has had on rural societies and economies, using more than 35 case study locations in 14 countries around the world, including Brazil, Canada, and Malawi. Readers can peruse the extensive fruits of this research at the link above. A good place to start are the story maps, which are organized into thematic categories such as Economy and Trade (e.g. dairy, mining), Global Challenges (e.g. climate change, poverty), and Migration (e.g. forced, historical). Readers interested in viewing the project's numerous other outputs, such as data, academic publications, presentations, and more, should visit the Resources section. Those wishing to see an overview of the project's major findings should view the story map entitled "Narrating the Global Countryside," which can be accessed on the main page. Global-Rural was led by Michael Woods, a Professor of Human Geography and of Transformative Social Science at Aberystwyth University, and supported with funding from the European Research Council.
