Kimberly Burnett's PhD Dissertation Defence

Abstract

This dissertation identifies and analyzes the strategies adopted by the fair trade and food sovereignty movements to address the negative impacts of the international agricultural trade regime on small-scale producers dependent on ·agricultural production for their livelihoods. Both movements contest the international agricultural trade regime, but approach changing the regime quite differently. I analyze these different strategies, seeking to determine how we might explain and understand each strategy.
