dc.description.abstractAmidst the rising acrimony over how we expect to feed ourselves in the next 50 years, three main schools of thought and strategy emerge. Two remain devoted to technological innovation, driven by corporate investment and international competition. A third proposes something more dramatic: configuring a food system integrated with the life of natural and human communities. This article is a powerful example of how assumptions and concepts shape the way we think, the strategies we formulate, and the practices we either adopt or invent. The result of these international food experts analysis—community-based food policy that is economically driven—is a wake-up call to all of us, in particular to Canadian food policy makers.en
