The conference “Food Sovereignty: A Critical Dialogue” was held twice: on 14-15 September 2013 in Yale University, USA, and on 24 January 2014 at the International Institute of Social Studies (ISS) in the Hague. It brought together the world’s leading scholars and activists, both sympathetic and supportive of the idea of food sovereignty, as well as those highly skeptical of the concept. They fostered a critical dialogue on the issue examining its various meanings, interpretations, and political implications.
The Transnational Institute has published 30 video clips from of the presentations held during the conferences at Yale University in September 2013 and at ISS in January 2014.
The combined processes towards the Yale conference and the ISS colloquium, there are now 94 working papers and 3 Discussion Notes.
