Globalization and Food Sovereignty: Global and Local Change in the New Politics of Food

Editors: Peter Andrée, Jeffrey Ayres, Michael J. Bosia, and Marie-Josée Massicotte


book coverAbout the Book: In recent years, food sovereignty has emerged as a way of contesting corporate control of agricultural markets in pursuit of a more democratic, decentralized food system. The concept unites individuals, communities, civil society organizations, and even states in opposition to globalizing food regimes. This collection examines expressions of food sovereignty ranging from the direct action tactics of La Vía Campesina in Brazil to the consumer activism of the Slow Food movement.
