Agricultural economics seminar on sustainable food governance

Export to PDF


The seminar is entitled: "Governance of food chains and consumption dynamics: what are the impacts on food security and sustainability? It will help to assess how interactions between different actors in food chains, including consumers, can lead to more sustainable food supply and consumption mechanisms. It will highlight the "missing link" between food consumption and production, which is more often invisible and undocumented than absent. Indeed, consumers’ behaviour is not only influenced by their socio-economic characteristics and the information available to them but also by the ways in which they access different food sources, i.e. their food landscape. Furthermore, the strategies of food suppliers are not only influenced by economic motives but also by the feedback they receive from consumers and civil society.
The seminar will explore new perspectives in the fields of economics and sociology of institutions, industrial economics (including value chain studies), circular economy, marketing and management research. Finally, it will develop opportunities for collaboration between universities and research groups involved in these areas of research and teaching
