Parsing the Palate: A Social Network Analysis of U.S. Food Advocacy Coalitions

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The U.S. food system is afflicted by variety of social, ecological, and economic predicaments resulting in hunger, food access inequalities, soil and water degradation, and lack of community control over food. Scholars and activists agree that in order for U.S. food movement actors to affect significant food system change, players must bridge a multitude of issue areas and ideological differences. Despite thorough analyses of local and regional food systems, little research has been conducted on either national level advocacy strategies or the ties that bind and divide food advocacy coalitions. Through the development of a social network analysis of 125 national-level food advocacy actors, this paper seeks to better understand how food issue areas and ideological perspectives influence organizational relationships and the likelihood of unified action. Additionally, this research tests existing theoretical work related to the food advocacy network and suggests where the most vigorous sites of future activism might reside.
