Family Farm Succession of the First Post-Socialist Generation in the Czech Republic


The main goal of the paper is to provide insights into the family succession processes in terms of the first inter-generational renewal that has been re-started in the Czech agricultural sector. We want to understand how major transformation processes (i.e., collectivisation, restitution, the post-socialist economic transformation and EU membership) constituted social structures that framed inter-generational change on Czech farms. Such a framework includes the “farm succession gap” that has resulted from the long-term societal changes and that is still reflected in the ongoing succession processes.
