Course provides a deeper understanding of how resilience is interpreted, applied and assessed in relation to food systems. Takes place 11 January to 31 March 2021

In the Anthropocene, the challenges to food systems are many and diverse. “Resilient food systems” are increasingly considered desirable and the term is sometimes used interchangeably with “sustainable food systems”, even though resilience is not inherently a property of sustainability. There is a growing body of literature focused on food systems and resilience.

A previous systematic mapping of articles published between 1991 and 2018 found 128 publications, and a preliminary search for literature published during 2019 and 2020 revealed about another 100 relevant publications.

Course details

The aim of this course is therefore to gain a deeper understanding of how resilience is interpreted, applied and assessed specifically in relation to food systems and to be able to relate the current scientific knowledge on food systems and resilience to one’s own research.

The PhD course runs in parallel with a reading group at the Stockholm Resilience Centre and during the course, students will immerse themselves in a subset of the body of peer-reviewed literature on food systems and resilience, present and discuss key papers within the field and attend workshops with senior scholars.

The course accepts 20 students. PhD students from the SRC Resilience research school have priority. To sign up to the course, email Kajsa Resare Sahlin no later than 15 December 2020.
