URCOLA, Marcos Andrés  and  NOGUEIRA, María Elena. The subjects of rural development in Argentina. From family farms to entrepreneurs. Rev. Cien. Soc. [online]. 2021, vol.34, n.49, pp.175-199.  Epub Dec 01, 2021. ISSN 0797-5538.

The central purpose of the present paper is to inquire about the subjects of rural development and the particular public policies connected to family farm, trying to focus on those aspects that show changes in their structure in Argentina between 2015 and 2019. In a context of reducing certain state capacities, we argue that entrepreneurship is presented as a conceptual and empirical proposal that is disputing the political meaning of family farm, redirecting public policies with instruments and programs that redefine their specific attributes. For this paper, we specially used a qualitative methodological strategy focused on the analysis of official discourses, the transformations of state structures and programs to family farm.

Keywords : family farm; entrepreneurship; rural development; Argentina.
