Abstract

This article analyzes the roles, relations, and positions of scholar-activists in the European food sovereignty movement. In doing so we document, make visible and question the political dimensions of researchers’ participation in the movement. We argue that scholar-activists are part of the movement, but are distinct from the affected constituencies put in place to ensure adequate representation of key movement actors. This is because scholar-activists lack a collective identity, have no processes to formulate collective demands, and no mechanisms for inter-researcher and researchers-movement communication. We reflect on whether and how scholar-activists could organize, and discuss possible pathways for a more cohesive and stronger researcher engagement in the movement.
