SOCIAL ECOLOGY. Journal for environmental thought and sociological research

ISSN (print): 1330-0113; ISSN (online): 1849-0360




About the special issue:

Despite the growing levels of income in European countries, the issues of food scarcity, inequalities and sovereignty are increasingly relevant in times of climate crisis and the global COVID-19 pandemic. The issues of food distribution and prices have only grown as the climate crisis intensifies. To determine the key actors responsible in national and global food policies, as well as identifying guidelines for further action, more sociological research is needed. Access to sustainable, healthy, and affordable food, in today’s networked and globalized world, is not a national issue, but a global one.


Therefore, we kindly invite you to submit your theoretical and empirical scientific papers on the issues related to food sovereignty for possible publication in the scientific journal Social Ecology, published by the Department of Sociology, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Zagreb, Croatia & Croatian Sociological Association.


We are honoured to have research professor Daniele Conversi), Ph.D. (https://scholar.google.es/citations?user=hH4c_7sAAAAJ&hl=en) as a Guest Editor for this special issue of Social Ecology.
