ATDF Journal Volume 8 Issue 1 & 2, 2011 - Food Sovereignty

7 February 2012
The contents of this issue of the ATDF Journal: The Global Food Crisis is not going away. The price peaks of 2008 have returned in 2011, but the remedies to address the problem largely remain the same. Many countries vow to fight the problem by invoking the fashionable term ‘Food Sovereignty’. It largely refers to the "right" of people to define their own food, agriculture, livestock and fisheries systems, in contrast to having food largely subject to international market forces. In our new ATDF issue we discuss the meaning of term ’Food Sovereignty’ and explore the potential impact of the pursuit of national food sovereignty policies on farming, research and trade protection.
