Policy from Below: Politicising urban agriculture for food sovereignty

Colin Anderson

In: Urban Agriculture Magazine no 33 - Urban Agroecology, p.72-74 (2017)

Urban agroecology goes beyond urban agriculture, which is often primarily technical or social in focus and has no fundamental political character per se. Agroecology is explicitly political and rooted in radical political thought and action. The case studies presented in this article can contribute to the development of political urban agroecology. They demonstrate mechanisms and platforms that social movements are co-creating as they argue for a transformative vision of agroecology.
