Overview

Globalization has created forces in favor of both integration and fragmentation, per Coleman (political science, McMaster U., Canada), a fellow political scientist from the UK, and an agricultural economist from the US. Based on the fact that the food chain has become a major focus of resistance to globalization (e.g., the response to genetically modified foods) and the concept of a transnational policy space, the authors contribute to debates on global political economy rather than on globalization per se. With examples from several countries and commodity sectors, they identify four agricultural policy paradigms: the traditional dependent-agriculture, neo-liberal competitive, multifunctional, and emergent globalized-production.
