Michael Cox and Stefan Partelow interview Jose Luis Vivero-Pol.

Jose Luis is an engaged scholar associated with the Universities of Louvain, Cordoba, Edinburgh and the Spanish Right to Food Observatory. His research interests include food valuations (rights, commodity, public good, commons) and food systems in transition. In particular, how normative food narratives shape food policies, and collective arrangements in customary and contemporary food commons.

In the podcast we discuss the following topics:

  • Current food narratives and policy implications
  • The “food as a commons” framework
  • Different schools of thought on commons
  • Difference between water and food being framed as commons
  • Influence of COVID19 on food systems
  • What Ostrom’s school of thought can learn from reframing food as a commons
  • Why interdisciplinarity is necessary but difficult to exercise
