Global food regimes and China - Agrarian Conversations episode 2
This is a recording of the second episode in Agrarian Conversations webinar series on "Global food regimes and China".
What relationship does China have to current food regime transitioning, with the changing geographies of production, circulation and consumption of global food commodities, and the growng significance of agroecological farming? Does China’s deepening international presence portend a new form of food regime hegemony? And what might that look like? If so, what are the implications of such changing dynamics for local, national, and international political struggles for a fairer and kinder agro-food system?
The webinar has a conversational format: initial short inputs from the speakers and panelists, followed by a much longer plenary Q&A. To allow for a dynamic conversational format, we provide a background paper for the webinar that we hope participants will be able to read before the event. For this episode, the (free access) background paper is: McMichael, P. (2020). Does China's ‘going out’strategy prefigure a new food regime?. Journal of Peasant Studies, 47(1), 116-154.
