Abstract

Recent literature has pointed at urban agriculture as an opportunity to achieve food justice and sovereignty. Building on this body of work, this paper look at the opportunities and limits that constraints UA in the achievement of this goal. In the first part the paper aims to expand the usual discussion on food justice based on consideration of gender, race and income, exploring how matter of distributional, cultural, capability, procedural and global justice unfold in the urban production of food. In the second part, the paper discusses four possible strategies that could inform grassroots political activism for food justice. These are: 1) challenging neoliberal urbanism; 2) converging urban and agrarian struggles; 3) food communing; 4) conceptualizing an agro-ecological urbanism.
