Food Sovereignty A New Rights Framework for Food and Nature?

Hannah Wittman

Food sovereignty, as a critical alternative to the concept of food security,
is broadly dei ned as the right of local peoples to control their own food systems,
including markets, ecological resources, food cultures, and production modes. h is
article reviews the origins of the concept of food sovereignty and its theoretical and
methodological development as an alternative approach to food security, building on
a growing interdisciplinary literature on food sovereignty in the social and agroecological
sciences. Specii c elements of food sovereignty examined include food regimes,
rights-based and citizenship approaches to food and food sovereignty, and the substantive
concerns of advocates for this alternative paradigm, including a new trade regime,
agrarian reform, a shit to agroecological production practices, attention to gender
relations and equity, and the protection of intellectual and indigenous property rights.
h e article concludes with an evaluation of community-based perspectives and suggestions
for future research on food sovereignty.
