Ambivalence des politiques commerciales agricoles sur l'insécurité alimentaire des pays africains : la souveraineté alimentaire et les négociations commerciales à l'OMC

Abstract : " Food Sovereignty " was developed through a globalized collective mobilization, as opposed to the liberalization of the agricultural sector initiated with the Uruguay Round in 1986.The debate on " Food Sovereignty " can mobilize and unite stakeholders. However, its translation into specific economic action is complex. The goal is to end the unfair competition in the global marketplace and institute a form of protection for the domestic agricultural markets of developing countries. The supporters of " Food Sovereignty " suspect that WTO rules and on-going negotiations will make this goal difficult to reach. However, some technical details espoused at the WTO are already aligned with the concept of " Food Sovereignty ", even if the term is not actually mentioned in the draft agreements. Examples, such as rice in Niger and chicken in Cameroon, are developed to illustrate these contradictions.
