Message from Marc Edelman:
For those who have been following the ‘food sovereignty: a critical dialogue’ process starting in September 2013 at Yale University and in January 2014 in ISS in the Hague – whether you attended one of the conferences, or followed the process electronically, or read the papers, or read about it on Facebook or Twitter, here are some important updates – and excellent resource materials! The critical dialogue continues… Please feel free to circulate the information.
*Food Sovereignty video clips now available!*
Academics, activists, farmers, and more gathered for the conference “Food
Sovereignty: A Critical Dialogue” – held twice: on 14-15 September 2013 in
Yale University, USA, and on 24 January 2014 at the International Institute
of Social Studies (ISS) in the Hague. It brought together the world’s
leading scholars and activists, both sympathetic and supportive of the idea
of food sovereignty, as well as those highly skeptical of the concept. They
fostered a critical dialogue on the issue examining its various meanings,
interpretations, and political implications.
