Global Food Governance

Research output: Thesisinternal PhD, WU


Globalisation in food production and consumption is fundamentally transforming a wide variety of social practices at different levels in society. Simply adding another level of governance will therefore not solve the problems related to food production and consumption in global modernity. Different layers in the social reality of global modernity are mutually connected and, besides their internal dynamics, interaction between them also takes place. This study has clarified the usefulness of the concepts of global flows and networks to understand these interactions regarding food.
