Reflections on experiences of research on food sovereignty with, for and by people. Workshop on research and food sovereignty (Barcelona, December 2010)

Michel Pimbert

Presentation

In 1996 the international peasant movement “La Vía Campesina” presented the Food Sovereignty (FS) proposal. FS is the right of people to define their own agricultural and food policies. It is also the right of peasants to produce food and the right of consumers to decide what they want to eat and how and who will produce their food. Nowadays it is widely accepted that the FS proposal offers some elements that could help to combat rural poverty and hunger. In this international seminar participants reflected on the scientific paradigm needed for the implementation of food sovereignty and the also discussed the roles that the academia can and must play in transformation for food sovereignty.
