Food Policy Battles, Institutional Integrity Capacity and Sustainability
Find in a Library
The authors delineate the market-induced and government-subsidized food policy wars and their adverse impacts on domestic and global stakeholders. Four competing perspectives on food policy - the globalist, naturalist, egalitarian, and progressive perspectives - and three competing paradigms implementing food policy - the productionist paradigm, the life sciences integration paradigm, and the ecologically integrated paradigm - are treated and critically analyzed. The authors then delineate the need for enhanced institutional judgment integrity capacity and sustainability as ways to reduce the adverse impact of the current dominance of the globalist, productionist approach. Finally, the authors recommend ten action steps for responsible institutional leaders that will enhance institutional integrity capacity and sustainability with respect to food policy decisions.
