Interdépendances et collaborations dans les systèmes agro-alimentaires : penser l’autonomie en agriculture au-delà de l’agricole

Forney, Jérémie

(Working Papers MAPS ; 1)

Prenant le contre-pied d’une vision individualiste de l’autonomie, de nombreuses pratiques de collaboration se déploient dans les mondes agricoles avec pour but notamment de faire gagner en autonomie les agriculteurs qui les portent. Ces actions rappellent que le contraire de l’indépendance est la dépendance, et non l’interdépendance (Emery 2015) et que l’autonomisation passe...

Buxtorf, Romane ; Forney, Jérémie (Dir.) ; Cabalé, Pierre (Codir.)

Mémoire de master : Université de Neuchâtel, 2019 ; 900/442.

La bureaucratie semble avoir infiltré tous les aspects de notre vie en société : des formulaires à remplir pour l’obtention d’une aide aux normes de sécurité et d’hygiène de plus en plus nombreuses et restrictives, en passant par l’écologisation de nos pratiques au travers de règles et d’incitations comportementales. La société néolibérale dans une logique toujours plus...

Beyond Soyisation – Donau Soja as Assemblage

Bentia, Dana ; Forney, Jérémie

In: Agri-environmental Governance as an Assemblage: Multiplicity, power, and transformation, 2018, p. 177-192

Soybeans embody the contradictions of progress in the Western imagination. They proliferated as a utopian promise (cheap vegetal protein for all) only to develop over a short two decades into a symbol of failure (GMOs). Most recently, as a response to the multiple crises of boundless capitalist accumulation and environmental degradation, concerted efforts were variously mobilized in Europe to...

Family farming and gendered division of labour on the move: a typology of farming-family configurations

Forney, Jérémie

In: Agriculture and Human Values, 2017, vol. 34, no. 1, p. 27-40

Family farming, understood as a household which combines family, farm and commercial activity, still represents the backbone of the world’s agriculture. On family farms, labour division has generally been based on complementarity between persons of different gender and generations, resulting in specific male and female spheres and tasks. In this ‘traditional’ labour division, gender...

Blind spots in agri-environmental governance: some reflections and suggestions from Switzerland

Forney, Jérémie

In: Review of Agricultural, Food and Environmental Studies, 2016, vol. 97, no. 1, p. 1

Attempts of making our food systems more sustainable have (partly) failed. Food production still contributes significantly to biodiversity losses, global warming and depletion of natural resources. Based on the postulation that this failure in the governance of environmental issues in agri-food systems relates notably to social and cultural aspects, this paper explores the literature in the...
