Chapter
The paradigmatic debates surrounding differing development goals and agendas occurring internationally are inevitably played out in developing countries. This chapter focuses on how socio-technical paradigms embodied in certain development discourses are instrumentalized in civil society initiatives and led to compete with each other on the ground...
Article
Full-text available
Pre-prepared food venues (or soup-pot restaurants) in Cambodia and other Asian countries make their decisions about what to cook in a complex food-society nexus, factoring in their culinary skill, seasonality of ingredients, and diners' expectations for variety. As such, soup-pot restaurants exist as tenuous brokers between rural food customs and t...

Full-text available
Since the turn of the century, most countries in Asia have entered a frenetic period of pursuing European-style sui generis geographical indication (GI) laws to protect domestically reputed agri-food products. Indeed, by 2018 almost all South, Southeast, and East Asian countries had enacted some form of sui generis legal protection. Observers specu...
Chapter
Full-text available
Georgian wine is characterized by its long history, embeddedness in unique landscapes and distinct culinary culture, high diversity of heirloom grape varieties unknown in the west, and distinctive production techniques. Georgian wine culture has also proven itself to be extraordinarily resilient. Despite being a battleground on many occasions, and...

Full-text available
In this paper, we reflect on the evolution of place-based governance from a long-term (15 year) study of rural development initiatives undertaken in a region of Poland as part of its accession to the European Union. We decompose the recursive process of institutional learning arising from initiatives for heritage preservation and rural economic dev...
Presentation
Wagyu, or Japanese beef, has undoubtedly become a central component of culinary heritage in Washoku, the traditional dietary cultures of Japan that is inscribed as a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage since 2014. Kobe beef and Matsusaka beef are the most famous Wagyu in Japan and overseas. Wagyu’s fat marbling appearance, tenderness, extremely hig...
Book
Full-text available
This edited volume covers the topic of Geographical Indication (GI) from a global perspective, using case studies from agri-food. The main theme is the re-evaluation of GI policies around the world: their resilience against capitalism and their role as facilitator or stumbling block for neoliberalism.
Chapter
Full-text available
Based on, but also adding to, the arguments presented in the volume, this concluding chapter provides an answer to the book’s research question about the emancipatory power of Geographical Indication (GI) under Globalization and Neoliberalism. It opens by arguing that emancipatory solutions based on initiatives confined to the agri-food sector (sec...
Chapter
Full-text available
This volume is about the emancipatory power and democratizing role of Geographical Indication (GI). Specifically, and through the presentation of original international research, it probes whether the implementation of GI represents a progressive alternative to the socio-economic trends and outcomes that characterize the contemporary global neolibe...
Article
The Japanese government introduced a direct payment scheme (DPS) for hilly and mountainous areas (HMAs) in 2000, with the aim of preventing further farmland abandonment in HMAs and compensating the farmers working in such disadvantaged regions for their costly production. Rural community members decide whether to participate in the DPS after taking...
Chapter
Full-text available
The triad of cooperation, international exchange and standard-setting among institutions of higher education has become a dominant framework for fostering transnational ties and spurring a knowledge society. The speed and surety with which this discursive constellation has formed in the previous two decades, however, is striking given the need to r...
Article
The extent to which Payments for Environmental/Ecosystem Services (PES) programs help to promote collective stewardship of common property resources (CPRs) has been gaining attention among scholars and practitioners. One of the main concerns related to collective arrangements is that a crowding-out effect is likely to emerge when the external inter...
Article
Full-text available
Since opening to the international community following the Paris Peace Accords in 1991, Cambodia has incrementally adopted a stance of political liberalization. Whether because of the exigencies of reconstruction and development or by intention, large tracts of the institutional domain have been delivered into the hands of development agencies, cor...
Chapter
Full-text available
Many facets of globalisation are contested on ethical or humanitarian grounds but the defence of local food and agriculture often borders on the spiritual. In particular, the decline or homogenisation of local food and agriculture is often acutely felt because it embodies a spiritual violation of cultural identity and sacredness of the land. The es...
Article
Full-text available
The triad of cooperation, international exchange, and integration among institutions of higher education has become the new norm in the global experience of learning and academic training. The goal of improving and standardising the academic experience across countries is now typically also associated with fostering cultural and political ties and...

One aspect of Amartya Sen’s conception of capabilities that requires elaboration in the light of recent debates on individual agency and globalisation is his notion of market freedom. Sen acknowledges the problematic linguistic connotations ‘free markets’ in the light of recent hegemonic discourses on neoliberal market globalisation, and prefers to...

Following international organisation theory developed by Barnett and Finnemore, bureaucracies such as the UN that see their sources of authority and autonomy threatened by other international organisations—or member states—often react by virulently reasserting their claims to various founts of international authority. The UN has done so by focussin...
Chapter
Full-text available
In this conclusion to the book, the editors draw together and consolidate the floating themes in the book and reflect on the methodological considerations of civil society studies emerging from the participatory book editing process. Most prominently, the 'civil society lens'—a conceptual instrument for studying associational activity—is theorized...
Book
Full-text available
As developing countries with recent histories of isolation and extreme poverty, followed by restoration and reform, both Cambodia and Vietnam have seen new opportunities and demands for non-state actors to engage in and manage the effects of rapid socio-economic transformation. This book examines how in both countries, civil society actors and the...
Article
Full-text available
The transition from violence and instability to peace and prosperity is rarely linear, but rather defined more by its complexity and the alignment of often-surprising conditions. The rebuilding and reorganization of the higher education sector, in particular, is increasingly being recognized as both a driver and a consequence of this complex transi...
Thesis
Full-text available
The environmental movement, which picked up steam from the 1960s in many rich countries, is manifested in modern-day green politics, pollution regulation, nature protection, the re-emergence of renewable energy, and organic agriculture. Discursively, this was, and still is, a post-industrial movement that arose out of atavistic notions of ‘returnin...
Article
Full-text available
This essay explores the ways in which the materiality of rice is encountered by agents along the production-consumption chain, from farmers to processors to urban consumers. Each agent, whether it is a farmer, miller, trader, consumer, or agronomic research agency, defines what is material (i.e., both tangible and discursively relevant) with respec...
Thesis
Full-text available
Presently, there is strong evidence to support the position that development strategies focussing on sustainable agriculture, especially low external input cultivation, are rapidly increasing in influence. Investigating the dialectic of the evolution in ideas and practices for sustainable agricultural development is important for an understanding o...

Thesis
Full-text available
The amount of research concerning the role of social capital in economic development has grown immensely in the previous decade, but measurement and usefulness of the concept still remain very pervasive and inaccessible to policy makers. This work departs from others on the topic of social capital because it differentiates between the collective ca...
Article
"Efforts so far have been directed to raise the awareness on the need to work on underutilized species and to start redressing their status of neglect. An area that has not been investigated yet is the analysis of when a species will evolve from its status of underuse and neglect to become a well utilized crop. This is a very relevant point if we w...
