This chapter explores the development of a multi-pronged approach to food systems’ transformation in Europe, one that resists the capitalist model, recognises the colonial, patriarchal, and capitalist roots of the local and international food chains that feed Europe, and promotes alternative forms of getting together, sharing, and co-producing with nature. More specifically, states are expected to recognise and protect the customary tenure systems of peasant communities, including commons, and support their long-term viability. The great success of the movement has so far been its role as a policy disruptor. Landworkers Alliance research, lobbying, and position papers on agricultural and food-related policies have broadened the public debate in the United Kingdom (UK), as has the mobilisation of various food movement actors to collaborate and deliver an integrated national food and agricultural policy proposal ‘A People’s Food Policy’. The Global North Food Sovereignty Movement leans strongly towards ‘the local’ and often excludes ‘the Other’.
