Governance for circular agri-food economies: restoring and regenerating landscapes

A College of Social Sciences and International Studies seminar
Date6 November 2019
Time10:30 to 12:00

This paper develops a new governance model for restorative and regenerative agri-food economies that balance, economic, social and environmental factors in new ways. Based on a critique of dominant neoliberal and extractivist governance approaches, this paper will make a case for a circular economy that works at a wider regional and landscape scale. Such a new economy is not focused on efficiency and productivity – the main mantras of contemporary agri-food and economic policies – but on effectiveness and resilience. A circular economy is not dependent on endless expansion, i.e. economic growth, but can still provide resilience for people and ecosystems within a degrowth (e.g. Brexit) scenario. Prof. Steffen Boehm is professor of organisation and sustainability at the University of Exeter Business School, UK.
