    Covid-19 and food: New Case Study in Germany and Brazil

    Due to the extensive impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on food security and sovereignty and the global food system, the Food for Justice research group has decided to include an additional case study on these new dynamics in the research project.

    The aim is to observe the acute and long-term consequences of the pandemic in Germany and Brazil and to draw comparisons of similarities and differences between the global South and North, with a particular focus on alternative strategies of resistance by social movements and producers in Brazil on the one hand and the unequal conditions and marginalization of migrants in the German production system on the other.

    The survey in Brazil started on November 20, 2020.
