Research Overview

My PhD project explores the synergies and contradictions between food sovereignty initiatives, visions and politics in the global North and the global South, also situating these in relation to environmental conflicts and discourses on food security. My methodological approach is participatory, critical and reflexive. Conceptually, I draw from economic anthropology, feminist economic geography, ecological economics, political ecology, as well as rural sociology, postcolonial studies and peasant studies.
