Food, an essential part of everyday human life, involves critical sustainability challenges from production through to processing, trade, consumption and waste. Our research ranges from local practices to global value chains, contributing critical sociological and political analysis with the purpose of driving positive change.

We study how global to local food systems engage with new governance arrangements and socio-technical innovations to address terrestrial, marine and atmospheric sustainability challenges. Our empirical research examines the interrelations between situated everyday food practices, the politics of governing environmental impacts from terrestrial and aquatic food production, and the implications of co-governing food value chains between public, private and civil society actors. Our analysis of the transformative capacity of daily practices and the relations found in food consumption and production networks offers new perspectives on the design of governance arrangements for healthy, equitable and environmentally resilient global food systems.
