The newest publication from the Institute of Food and Development Policy, Food Movements Unite! Strategies to Transform Our Food Systems (First Food Books, 2011) collects a variety of voices and opinions from farmers, workers, and consumers in diverse communities all over the world in an attempt to answer one question: “How can we unite to transform the global food system?” Contributors to the volume include activists and practitioners from organizations such as Via Campesina, the Slow Food Movement, and the World March of Women. The contributors lay out their strategies for new food production and distribution systems to key individuals like olivier De Schutter, UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food, and João Pedro Stédile of the Brazilian Landless Worker’s Movement.
