Call for Papers: Building an Integrated National Food Policy for Canada

This themed issue of CFS/RCÉA (Canadian Food Studies / La Revue canadienne des études sur l’alimentation) aims to highlight the spectrum of current scholarship focusing on prospects and challenges for a joined-up, systems-based approach to national food policy that aims to connect sectors, departments and jurisdictions, and establish opportunities for meaningful civil society participation. We are interested in contributions that explore ways that an effective national food policy would be rooted in the goals of healthy and safe food, social and ecological justice, a robust economy, the rights of Indigenous peoples, and democratizing governance.

We are seeking a wide range of papers that explore a national food policy in all its complexity. Please note that submissions can be made under a variety of categories, described under the "Submissions" menu at These categories include commentaries, perspective articles, original research articles, review articles, field reports, digital works, and art or design works.

For details, please see the attached CFP in English or in French.

Guest editors: Charles Levkoe, Amanda Willson, Peter Andrée and Diana Bronson.
