Introduction to the RAEstud 30th anniversary special issue

In 1984, the French journal Cahiers d’Économie et Sociologie Rurales (CESR) published its first issue on the theme of farmers and credit. The following issues did not appear on a regular basis until 1988, when four issues per year were published, as it is still the case today. The CESR also began to publish book reviews in 1993. The journal’s originality lies in its disciplinary editorial policy, publishing articles in both economics and sociology. While this can sometimes be challenging, it has been a success and gives the reader access to different points of view on certain topics. Thirty years on, and the French journal is still here. We would like to take the opportunity of this 30th anniversary special issue to thank all the editors who established the journal and enabled it to survive, and in particular Carl Gaigné for giving it a new lease of life in 2008. We also express our sincere gratitude to the Economics and Sociology Division of INRA who consistently financially supported the journal and made various changes possible.
