ICIRD7 Panel: Peasant Agroecology as a Social Movement

Panel 13 of ICIRD7 will be convened by Peter Rosset of El Colegio de la Frontera Sur (ECOSUR) to give an overview of different peasant movements and processes in Africa, Latin America and Asia as they struggle against trade liberalization, the non-enforcement of antimonopoly legislation, dangerous pesticides and industrial livestock operations. At the same time, the panel looks at how peasant movements are building new food systems based on food sovereignty, land occupations, defense of land and territory, and peasant-based agroecology.
