Special issue on food sovereignity

Globalizations Journal Special Issue: Food Sovereignty: Concept, Practice and Social Movements 

The third journal special issue from the 2013 Yale food sovereignty conference has been released, and is now available online, with free access for a limited time. The contributors argue that to advance the theory and practice of food sovereignty,  new frameworks and analytical methods are needed to move beyond binaries— between urban and rural, gender equality and the family farm, trade and localism, and autonomy and engagement with the state. A research agenda in food sovereignty must not shy away from the rising contradictions in and challenges to the movement. The places of seeming contradiction may in fact be where the greatest insights are to be found.
