ABSTRACT
The authors raise an extremely important, yet controversial, issue concerning the future of the European Model of Agriculture (EMA) under the circumstances of increased level of globalisation’s impact on the economy. In various respects, the EU agriculture constitutes an ex-ceptional subsystem, which has emerged as a result of implementing the Common Agricultural Policy. The study includes an analysis of the underlying features embedded in this model, significantfor its competi- tiveness under globalisation conditions. The analysis also covers the consequences of globalisation, such as the necessity to verify the cat- egory of marginal conditions for conducting agricultural production, and the impact of globalisation on food security.As a finalconclusion, the authors suggest a number of premises indicating that globalisation, without specificpolitical and economic measures, may result in downgrading the EMA, which may lead to its rejection or decline, hence to the marginalisation of agriculture in the EU countries.
