The Global Environmental Politics of Food

Clapp, Jennifer, Caitlin Scott. 2018. The Global Environmental Politics of Food. Global Environmental Politics, 18(2): 1-11.

Abstract

This special issue seeks to expand our understanding of the complex interlinkages between the politics and governance of the global environment, on one hand, and the global food system on the other. The articles in this issue explore insights that the field of global environmental politics can bring to questions of food system sustainability, while at the same time considering what the relationship between food systems and the environment reveals about the nature of global environmental politics. The authors examine how issues at the intersection of environment and food are framed in international political settings; the articles explore the political and economic dynamics surrounding different actors—including states, corporations, civil society organizations, and marginalized populations—in shaping debates around how best to govern these issues.
