Sustainable agri-food systems and social justice: Crossed lessons from the Brazilian and the French experiences

Claire Lamine

Claire Lamine uses in-depth case studies to compile a critical survey of transitional approaches to sustainable agrifood systems. Lamine’s work explores the translation of agroecology into government programmes, and focuses on the governance of France and Brazil in particular. These two countries are pioneers in implementing agroecology, yet differ in their visions and execution. Providing new options for understanding the complex issue of agrifood transitions, this book will make an impact for those studying food systems, geography, sociology, politics and agriculture.
