(Agro)ecologia politica dei conflitti per la terra e il cibo in Ecuador

Isabella Giunta


The contemporary corporate food regime (McMichael 2018) is characterized by reduction of food to commodity, rural-urban divide, profound asymmetries in access to resources (land and water), extractivism in the form of industrial agriculture (Gudynas 2013; Svampa 2019) and processes of accumulation by dispossession (Harvey 2003). In this context, the paper relies on the approach of political agroecology (González de Molina et al. 2019) to retrace the transformation of food conflicts in Ecuador, from traditional land struggles towards a more complex collective action in the name of food sovereignty, which deals with a scenario of recurring economic and ecological crises.
