Corporate Power in Global Agrifood Governance

Peter Newell

The MIT Press

This chapter, which examines the role of corporate power in the governance of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in Argentina, suggests that the story of agricultural biotechnology in Argentina reveals the powerful combination of the politics of poverty, the power of transnational corporations, and the political economy of food and agriculture. It traces the development of GMO politics and policy in Argentina, and discusses the implications of the different dimensions of corporate power in the Argentinian setting for alternative ways of organizing the governance of food and agriculture.

Keywords:   corporate power, GMO politics, GMO policy, Argentina, agricultural biotechnology, politics of poverty, transnational corporations
