  • Abstract

In debates regarding global food security, solutions come at different scales, including global, national, and local. With increasing economic globalization, powerful transnational seed businesses seek to expand the reach of their seed and input technologies. However, there has also been much concern regarding the power of transnational seed businesses. On the one hand, peasant and small farmer movements have raised concerns about the power of these seed companies in China (see http://www.shiwuzq.com/) and abroad (see http://viacampesina.org/en/). On the other hand, prominent national academics and policymakers in China have also raised concerns about the power of these transnational seed companies in relation to China’s seed industry. My talk will introduce the similarities and conflict between national food security and local food sovereignty in the context of economic globalization in the agricultural sector.

 

  • 摘要(参考译文)

全球粮食安全的大辩论有几个观点,它们基于不同的尺度:全球,全国,和当地。随着全球经济的一体化,跨国种子公司要推广它们的品种和农药技术。但,也有很多忧心对跨国种子公司的垄断。一方面,中国(http://www.shiwuzq.com/) 和外国 (http://viacampesina.org/en/) 农民运动担忧跨国种子公司的实力。另一方面,中国学术界和决策者也担忧跨国种子公司的势力对国内种业的影响。在经济全球化的背景下,本次演讲将介绍国家粮食安全和人民食物主权之间的相似性和冲突性。
