Food Sovereignty and Land Grabbing
This book focuses on the relationship between food sovereignty and land grabbing. Adopting a multidisciplinary approach, the book deals with various aspects concerning the rush for land, and the subsequent popular and indigenous resistance in different parts of the world. Each contribution deals with a specific case study, shedding light on central issues surrounding extractivism and resistance by local and indigenous communities. This volume is an editorial project born “from below” – more specifically, during an intense cultural exchange among people coming from many countries, such as the Netherlands, the USA, Brazil, the UK, and Italy. In this sense, the book serves to problematize food sovereignty from many perspectives, and is an example of a new pedagogical approach to research.
