High Politics of Food

Bilden, Kaare M.: Matens storpolitikk

There is more and more talk about the world’s supply of food. A lot of it is myths. Because it is not necessarily true that food that has travelled a short distance is more environmental friendly than food that has travelled far, that there is not enough food in the world, and that rich countries have to send more food to poor countries to solve the famine issues.

How did these myths form, and what are the consequences of them staying alive and flourishing? How can we get the debates out of the old, national trenches and into constructive innovativeness? A breakthrough in the power struggle about high politics of food will give positive extended effects for the climate, income to poor countries, worker’s rights, safety, and for most people’s option of living a good life.
