Food Sovereignty

As other parts of the world, genetically modified (GM) crops are controversial on the African continent. Since 2013, I have been researching the Ghanaian Food Sovereignty Platform, a network of organizations, farmers collectives, religious bodies and activists who oppose the introduction of GM crops. Through participant observation and semi-structured interviews, I explore how Ghanaian activists define and advocate for food sovereignty light of a changing climate, limited state support, and a sector dominated by  donor funding.
