Rethinking the roots of food poverty: Broken history, broken food system
A Talk by Gareth Haysom
African Centre for Cities
About this talk
Food insecurity today is not only a consequence of relatively recent post-apartheid legal and regulatory approaches, nor of a neo-liberal economic order. Deeper roots of this persistent problem can be traced back through pre-apartheid and colonial structures, laws and conflicts. This highlights the need to engage with deeper societal issues and to broaden our understanding of the causes of food poverty, as well as what is required to address it in a meaningful way.<hr>
