CfP: Scientific journal "Social Ecology" - Special Issue on "Food Sovereignity"

SOCIAL ECOLOGY. Journal for environmental thought and sociological research ISSN (print): 1330-0113; ISSN (online): 1849-0360   SPECIAL ISSUE: FOOD SOVEREIGNTY IN EUROPE About the special issue: Despite the growing levels of income in European countries, the issues of food scarcity, inequalities and sovereignty are increasingly relevant in times of climate crisis and the global COVID-19 pandemic. The issues of food distribution and prices have only grown as the climate crisis intensifies. To determine the key actors responsible in national and global food policies, as well as identifying guidelines for further action, more sociological research is needed. Access to sustainable, healthy, and affordable food, in today’s networked and globalized world, is not a national issue, but a global one. Therefore, we kindly invite you to submit your theoretical and empirical scientific papers on the issues related to food sovereignty for possible publication in the scientific journal   Social Ecol
