Jessica Duncan (Teacher of the year) and Simon Bush will give the next WURtalk on 24 January.

Why conflict matters: examples from food governance

In this WURtalk I make the case for conflict over consensus when it comes to food security governance. I start with the rise multistakeholder processes that aim for a pathway towards consensus. I argue that this push for consensus, coupled with “all for one” solutions (e.g. SDGs) raise a number of concerns for food security policy-making that can be countered by embracing conflict.

Sustainable seafood: Do consumers matter?

Nearly 80% of all seafood sold in supermarkets is labelled as sustainable. Have you ever stopped to think why? The conventional view is that consumer choices drive market-led change. But behind these labels is a range of organisations and initiatives actively shaping political forms of consumerism for you. What is the effect they will have on seafood sustainability in the future?
