Dr Gearoid Millar secures British Academy Collaborative Action-Research Project

Dr Gearoid Millar has secured a British Academy action-research grant, in collaboration with Dr Lidia Cabral (Institute of Development Studies), Dr Melanie Levick-Parkin (Sheffield Hallam University), and Dr Iva Pesa (University of Groningen).

The interdisciplinary project, entitled Just Food?, runs from April 2021 to March 2022 and will create a mutual exchange network to examine strategies for achieving the just transition of food systems.

Focusing on four country cases, Brazil, Zambia, Sierra Leone, and the UK, the project will engage in participatory workshops organised by local civil society organisations, before sharing the data via online interregional engagement meetings with international food system advocacy organisations.

It is anticipated that the project will produce articles, policy briefs, an online portal presenting the data and outputs, and a new interregional network.
