Alternative Models of Production and Food Sovereignty

(p.104) Chapter Four Agrarian Citizenship
Mobilizing Bolivia's Displaced

University of North Carolina Press

Movimiento sin Tierra's (MST) idea of food sovereignty and agroecology is deeply embedded in collaborative or collective forms of production. In order to build small-scale agricultural communes, members rely upon a mixture of reciprocity and economic exchanges for survival. This chapter discusses MST's attempts to reconfigure the agricultural model of agrarian citizenship to expand agribusiness in Bolivia. In looking for alternative socioeconomic and productive models to guarantee food sovereignty, it examines the ways in which the ayllu practices of democracy and agroecology can ensure food security for people and sustainable lifestyles for future generations.
