Margulis M (2014) Trading Out of the Global Food Crisis? The World Trade Organization and the Geopolitics of Food Security, Geopolitics, 19 (2), pp. 322-350.
The geopolitics of the Global Food Crisis and international trade has received limited scholarly attention, a significant omission given the major roles of the World Trade Organization (WTO) in structuring world food production and trade flows and as a principal inter-state governing mechanism of the global agro-food system. Analysing recent international policy actions framing the WTO as a ‘fix' to the Global Food Crisis, this article points to the value of a critical geopolitics of agro-power sensitive to the spatial reconfiguration of production and power in the global agro-food system, problematising geospatial categories such as ‘North' and ‘South', and that takes seriously contests for control of geopolitical agents such as the WTO.
