Cambio de perspectivas: Agricultores de pequeña escala, mercados y globalización

Sophia Murphy


This paper maps and summarizes the debate relating to small-scale farmers and their relationships to globalized and globalizing markets. It documents evolving views of small-scale farming as the process of globalization evolves, looking at how small-scale farmers have been viewed in relation to both wider economic development priorities and in relation to food security policies. The paper also looks at how small-scale farmers have navigated these changes. The paper describes five broad narratives to describe how different actors see small-scale farmers in the context of globalizing markets. The analysis also explores how the 2007-2008 global food crisis and its aftermath have challenged these narratives.
