Abstract

This paper wants to contribute to the debate on the complex relationships between law and agroecosystems from a legal pluralistic perspective. For this purpose, it first explains what is legal pluralism, and then this notion is used to conceptualize law, the relationship between law and social fields, and sovereignty. Second, the paper critically reviews the concept of agroecosystems and explains how a legal pluralistic perspective can enrich agroecology as a transdisciplinary field of studies. Finally, to operationalize how the complex relationships between law and agroecosystems can be studied from a legal pluralistic perspective, it describes the rise of nonstate sovereigns over sustainability.
