European model of agriculture in relation to global challenges

The authors raise an extremely important, yet controversial, issue concerning the future of the European Model of Agriculture (EMA) under the circumstances of increased level of globalisation’s impact on the economy. In various respects, the EU agriculture constitutes an exceptional subsystem, which has emerged as a result of implementing the Common Agricultural Policy. The study includes an analysis of the underlying features embedded in this model, significant for its competitiveness under globalisation conditions. The analysis also covers the consequences of globalisation, such as the necessity to verify the category of marginal conditions for conducting agricultural production, and the impact of globalisation on food security. As a final conclusion, the authors suggest a number of premises indicating that globalisation, without specific political and economic measures, may result in downgrading the EMA, which may lead to its rejection or decline, hence to the marginalisation of agriculture in the EU countries.
