The chapter provides a synthesis and highlights important themes that emerge from the collection, including the class and race biases in food localization projects; the need to integrate the socio-cultural dimension in food debates; the controversies surrounding the development of GM crops; and the place of local food in tourism-dependent places. Each chapter in the volume critically analyzes the different initiatives within the political economy context, identifying the pitfalls and contradictions that might threaten the effectiveness of the initiatives, while highlighting the diverse potential to engage citizens in food democracy.
