Transforming agricultural policies towards greater socio-environmental and food justice should be a global priority. The UN Declaration on the Rights of Farmers and Other People Working in Rural Areas (UNDROP), adopted in December 2018, is an important intervention to draw attention to the responsibilities of states and actors in the agri-food industry. In the context of new extractivism and the so-called just transition to a “green” economy, we intend to discuss the future of peasants and small producers: panelists will explore that alternative food movements and networks could play in the promotion of the rights of peasants and agricultural workers. The questions we raise are: Why is traditional agriculture based on agro-biodiversity necessary? What is the role of peasants in fostering food justice? What are the challenges and possibilities peasants face? What strategies are needed to build a sustainable and fair food system? What would a Just Food Europe Transition look like?
