• Summary

  • Is a local or global food system more sustainable? How big should a farm be? Debates about the future of food have become more polarised than ever. We will explore the evidence, worldviews, and values that people bring to global food system debates. Our show will be in conversation with those who are trying to transform the food system, as part of the ongoing work of Table, a collaboration between the University of Oxford, the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU), and Wageningen University. This podcast is operated by SLU. For more info, visit https://tabledebates.org/podcast/

    Has the increasing commodification of food and financialization of the food system left us more vulnerable to food crises? We speak with Jennifer Clapp about the 20th century history of food policy that led us to this moment, how the Covid-19 food crisis is different than previous ones, and how diversity, in all of its forms, is essential to building a resilient food system.

    This episode was originally broadcast on 25 March 2021.

    On 8 December 2021, TABLE hosted an open-ended discussion about power in the food system with representatives from civil society, academia, media and the private sector.  At TABLE we recognise that our own biases and perspectives will influence how we think about power in the food system so the purpose of the event is to hear a range of different views and understandings of power. This kick off event helps us think about who and what shapes, controls and influences past, present and future food systems. 

    Event panelists:

    • Media: Eddy Wax - Reporter covering food and agriculture for POLITICO in Brussels.
    • Academia: Wendy Godek - Professor of Politics and International Relations with focus on Latin American food and agriculture politics
    • Civil society: Shefali Sharma - Director of Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy (IATP) Europe
    • Private: Sahil Shah - Co-founder of agri-tech company Sustainable Seaweed and policy consultant
    • Moderator: Matthew Kessler, Project coordinator forTABLE at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences.

    We're curious to hear your views about power in the food system. Continue the conversation on our community platform.
