A European perspective on the politics and practice of food sovereignty

This presentation will focus on exploring the politics and practice of Food Sovereignty in Europe. We will look at how the vision has been developed by the European Coordination of Via Campesina, and other grassroots civil society organisations, into a credible framework for a localised, democratic and sustainable solution to the problems of the industrial food and farming system in Europe. The talk will blend examples of food sovereignty in practice, with an analysis of the political significance of the Food Sovereignty vision in the European context, and a look forwards at the development of the European food sovereignty movement.
