Presentation Abstract: The recently announced mergers among some of the biggest players in the agricultural input industry underline the extent to which the sector has come to be dominated by a small number of giant firms. Growing corporate concentration in the food sector has given rise to intense debate about its implications, including for the environment. In this talk, Jennifer Clapp will provide an analysis of these latest debates and their significance for the politics of sustainability in the global food system.

Speaker Bio: Dr. Jennifer Clapp is a Canada Research Chair in Global Food Security and Sustainability and Professor in the School of Environment, Resources and Sustainability and the Balsillie School of International Affairs at the University of Waterloo. She has published widely on the global governance of problems that arise at the intersection of the global economy, the environment, and food security. Her most recent books include Speculative Harvests: Financialization, Food and Agriculture (with S. Ryan Isakson, Fernwood, 2018), Food (Polity, 2016), Hunger in the Balance: The New Politics of International Food Aid (Cornell University Press, 2012), Paths to a Green World: The Political Economy of the Global Environment (with Peter Dauvergne, MIT Press, 2011), and Corporate Power in Global Agrifood Governance (co-edited with Doris Fuchs, MIT Press, 2009).
