My research looks at social movements and networks of civil society actors promoting food sovereignty, social and environmental justice. I am particularly interested in peasant and citizen movements in Brazil and Mexico involved with La Via Campesina and the World Social Forum (WSF). My work seeks to better understand how these actors are promoting and putting into practice alternative models of agriculture and economic development that take into account the needs and hopes of local communities and their environment.
