Brief description This project will analyse rural land use conflicts in Australia in terms of sets of values, focussing on if and how one set, agrarianism, centred on belief in the primacy of agriculture, has changed with the �encroachment� of activities such as mining, wind power generation and wildlife conservation into rural spaces. This study, based on a survey and content analyses, will be the most comprehensive study of agrarianism in Australia and internationally innovative in considering so many other land uses and their associated social values. Outcomes will include attitudes data and conceptual frameworks that will help policy-makers and stakeholders understand and manage land use conflicts.
