Abstract

This chapter offers a unique insight into how La Vía Campesina’s relationships with researchers inside and outside of academia are understood and perceived by movement actors at the movement– researcher interface.
It relays how La Vía Campesina’s relations with academics have undergone a profound shift since the movement’s early years.
It communicates the importance of solidarity to successful collaborations between movement actors and academic researchers.
It captures the fact that, for La Vía Campesina, the majority of its energy invested in knowledge activities is directed towards the autonomous development of training-, education- and research-capacity, with La Vía Campesina’s member organisations leading the way.
