Just Food Transitions: Addressing the Peasant Question in Europe

4 November 2021, 10am-12am | 02:00pm-03:35pm



Transforming agricultural policies towards greater socio-environmental and food justice should be a global priority. The UN Declaration on the Rights of Farmers and Other People Working in Rural Areas (UNDROP), adopted in December 2018, is an important intervention to draw attention to the responsibilities of states and actors in the agri-food industry. In the context of new extractivism and the so-called just transition to a "green" economy, we intend to discuss the future of peasants and small producers: panelists will explore the role that alternative food movements and networks could play in the promotion of the rights of peasants and agricultural workers. The questions we raise are: What is the role of peasants in fostering food justice? What strategies are needed to build more just food systems?

This symposium is a JUSTFOOD initiative. The project JUSTFOOD is financed by FEDER - European Fund for Regional Development funds through the COMPETE 2020 - Operational Programme for Competitiveness and Internationalisation (POCI), and by Portuguese funds through FCT - Foundation for Science and Technology in the framework of the project 029355.
