The objective of this policy was to bring services closer to the people while at the same time enhancing local participation and democracy. The success of decentralisation was, however, greatly dependent on the amount of funds and other resources available to local governments.

    Transforming food systems: The potential of engaged political economy

    Institute of Development Studies UK, 2019

    Power in the Zambian nutrition policy process

    Institute of Development Studies UK, 2019
    This article presents an example of a power analysis in the nutrition policy process in Zambia, using the ‘power cube’ framework. Here, nutrition policy priorities were found to have been shaped by a global epistemic community relying on the hidden and invisible power of technical language and knowledge to frame policy options which resonated with their own beliefs about malnutrition.

    Institute of Development Studies UK, 2019
    Brighton – a city on the south coast of the UK with a vibrant food scene but also home to some entrenched inequalities – presents an excellent local case from which to explore some of the wider issues considered in this IDS Bulletin on the political economy of food.

    Agroecology and food sovereignty

    Institute of Development Studies UK, 2019
    The authors propose that agroecology provides a framework for understanding ‘levels’ for the transition to sustainable food systems.

    Reflections on IPES-Food: Can power analysis change the world?

    Institute of Development Studies UK, 2019
    The major way in which IPES-Food seeks to achieve change is by preparing and widely disseminating reports on different aspects of the global food system, which are rigorous in both empirical and analytical terms. These reports are heavily critical of the productionist approach, demonstrating its negative impacts on the environment and human wellbeing.
