Food Sovereignty

Since 2013, I have been researching the Ghanaian Food Sovereignty Platform, a network of organizations, farmers collectives, religious bodies and activists. The Platform originally formed in opposition to genetically modified crops, but has since expanded their agenda. I use qualitative methods to 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.

Please see a list of my publications for more on this topic.
