About the Book

“Civil Society and Social Movements in Food System Governance” offers insights into the governance of contemporary food systems and their ongoing transformation by social movements. As global food systems face multiple threats and challenges, there is an opportunity for social movements and civil society to play a more active role in building social justice and ecological sustainability. Drawing on case studies from Canada, the United States, Europe and New Zealand, this book showcases promising ways forward for civil society actors to engage in governance.
