Food sovereignty in context (book)

Food Sovereignty in International Context: Discourse, politics and practice of place

Food sovereignty is an emerging discourse of empowerment and autonomy in the food system with the development of associated practices. This book is a collection of empirically rich and theoretically engaged papers across a broad geographical spectrum reflecting on what constitutes the politics and practices of food sovereignty. They contribute to a theoretical gap in the literature as well as a relative shortage of empirical work on food sovereignty in the global "North"; specific case studies are included from Canada, Norway, Switzerland, southern Europe, UK and USA. The book offers a wide variety of empirical examples and a theoretically engaged framework for explaining the aims of actors and organizations working toward autonomy and democracy in the food system.
