This book is the first scholarly study of the new transnational agrarian movements (TAMs) from their perspective. It explores how they strategize against the global governance of agriculture to confront neoliberal aims of expanding capital penetration in the countryside. TAMs oppose this phase of financialization and instead foster a system based on agroecology and re-peasantization of production, valuing labour and natural resources over capital.

The book outlines how TAMs defend food sovereignty and oppose neoliberal policies in the context of climate change negotiations. It is written from their perspective, merging scholarship with activism through a methodology of observant participation.
Mauro Conti is a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Calabria, Italy. He works as a consultant on family farming for FAO. He is the past global coordinator of the Secretariat of the International Planning Committee for Food Sovereignty and was serving as president and policy officer at Centro Internazionale Crocevia.
