4 Scopus citations


The rhetoric of "food security" has dominated mainstream approaches to global food insecurity while alternative approaches have received less attention. For decades, the World Food Prize has honored work in the tradition of "food security." More recently, the Food Sovereignty Prize has brought attention to alternative approaches, namely the "food sovereignty" approach. This article explores how the inaugural awarding of the Food Sovereignty Prize represents an attempt to bring broader visibility to and to gain recognition of these approaches by policymakers.
