Chapter 70 Reconfiguring the intersection between urban food movements and agrarian struggles: Building an urban political agroecology praxis
Restricted access

This chapter argues that urban food movements and practices should have a central role in critical agrarian studies. Firstly, because many issues and debates central to agrarian studies are highly relevant for understanding the conditions that frame both rural and urban food movements. Secondly, because understanding these common roots opens up opportunities for rethinking the articulation between urban and rural contexts, moving away from artificial and outdated separation between producers and consumers (cfr. ‘urban bias’ debates). Finally, because new understanding and alliances lead to novel political strategies and offers a fertile ground for the emerging urban political agroecology praxis.
