In recent years, major shifts in global markets from North to South have created a new geography of trade and consumption in the agricultural sector. The processes of twenty-first-century globalization are fundamentally changing the politics and governance of agricultural supply chains, with profound implications for the environment and the effectiveness of transnational business governance.
In this one-hour event, Philip Schleifer (University of Amsterdam) discusses his new book and offers a political economy analysis of the deepening crisis of commodity-driven deforestation and explores the complex and evolving picture of both the risks and opportunities for sustainable commodity governance in the current phase of globalization. The presentation is followed by a 10-minute discussion by Khalid Nadvi (University of Manchester) and a 20-minute open discussion/ Q&A round.
