The Conference addresses the nature of disciplinary practices in the study of society, and the interdisciplinary practices that arise in the context of ‘real world’ applications of social research and theory. It also interrogates what constitutes ‘science’ in a social context, and the connections between the social and other sciences.
The 7th edition of the Conference specifically examined interdisciplinary practices across the social sciences, between the social sciences and the natural sciences and between the applied sciences and professions.
Mr. Hayford Mensah Ayerakwa, a Principal Research Assistant at ISSER and an Agricultural Economist, was invited to attend this world class conference. He presented a paper titled “Farmers Willingness to Pay for Agricultural Extension Services for Sustainable Agriculture: Evidence from the MCA Ghana Programme”.
Using the Millennium Challenge Account Ghana Programme, the paper discussed the factors influencing Ghanaian farmers’ readiness to pay for agricultural extension services and how much they are prepared to pay if willing.
He has since returned and assumed his normal duties at ISSER.
