    Call for Papers: 4th International Food & Society Conference

    Call for Papers:

    • Title: Sustainable and Inclusive Food Systems
    • Date: 16-18 November 2023
    • Location: Grand Margherita Hotel, Kuching, Sarawak, Borneo, Malaysia
    • Registration Deadline: 30 October 2023

    A consensus and stable definition of a sustainable food system is difficult to achieve due to the complexity of the food system concept and the diversity of the stakeholders involved. Social movements advocating for sustainable food systems have become some of the most significant and thrilling movements of our time, but theorizing the scope and substance of sustainable food systems continues to be a challenge for academia. Bell and Morse’s 2000 attempt to establish a set of holistic and qualitative sustainability indicators, while meritorious, remains an unfinished experiment. Recent events, such as the Covid-19 pandemic, have brought to light tensions in the global food system, particularly with regard to the vulnerability of the global food supply chain and the impact of climate change.

    These two main issues necessitate immediate scientific investigation and represent our upcoming conference’s top research priorities in the following terms:

    • Theme 1: Sustainable Food Supply Chain
    • Theme 2: Environment & Climate Change
    • Theme 3: Food Security
    • Theme 4: Food Sovereignty
    • Theme 5: Food Inclusivity
    • Theme 6: Other Food Sustainability Or Inclusivity Related Themes
