Global food regimes and China: Agrarian Conversations episode 2

Transnational Institute

Published on Apr 29, 2021

The second episode in Agrarian Conversations webinar series will be on “Global food regimes and China”. What relationship does China have to current food regime transitioning, with the changing geographies of production, circulation and consumption of global food commodities, and the growing significance of agroecological farming? Does China’s deepening international presence portend a new form of food regime hegemony? And what might that look like?

The webinar will be in English, Spanish, French and Mandarin.

The webinar has a conversational format with a long plenary Q&A. To allow for a dynamic conversational format, we provide an (free access) background paper for the webinar: McMichael, P. (2020).
