TWO SERIES OF EVENTS TO EXPLORE THE ISSUE OF FOOD SYSTEM’S GOVERNANCE 

The first set of five round tables held from April to June 2015 addressed the strategic links between global food governance and territorial or local food governance. It took place in Rome and was organized in the premises of the Department of Economics of Università degli Studi Roma Tre. It was an occasion
to share knowledge and good practices with Master degree students, PhD candidates, teachers, researchers, members of non-governmental and international organizations, but also the general public. This cycle will be completed with a symposium at the French School of Rome, organized with the Research Team for the History of the Rural World EHESS (EHESS – CRH), dedicated to the history of the regulation of agribusiness.
The second series will focus on the Participatory mechanisms of the food governance, trying to assess the role and the involvement of citizens and local communities in the design of collaborative food policies, with a focus on Italian and French ongoing experiences.

The global program of the conference series is available in French and in Italian.
