’Science, Technology and Society’

Call for papers Special issue “Science, Technology and Food Security”
Like other global challenges such as climate change, food security has driven the activities and discourses of many different players (national and international public institutions, industries, NGOs, farmers’ organizations, etc.) over the last ten years. Originally rooted in the problem of hunger in developing countries, food security is now an issue embedding new forms of North-South, South-South or North-North relationships. Issues of global governance, social movements, market regulations and food systems have been extensively discussed by scholars, thus giving substance to food security studies. But relatively little attention has been paid to the ways in which science and technology contribute to shape or address debates on food security. The aim of this special issue of Science, Technology and Society is to explore the role of science and technology in the contemporary understandings and government of food security, particularly in terms of global South-North relations.
