Food Sovereignty: A Holistic View


Devarati Roy Chowdhury

This paper attempts to identify and assess some of the key elements that ‘frame’ Food Sovereignty to give a holistic understanding. Food Sovereignty emerged in part as a mobilization in resistance to the WTO’s Agreement on Agriculture and its imposition of multilateral disciplines on domestic agriculture policy. At end, this paper formulates how Food Sovereignty is different from Food Security and how it has the potential to be the foundation of an alternative food system that can transcend the deep-seated social, economic and ecological contradictions of the global food economy.
