"In Uganda and the world at large, food aid and agricultural modernization constitute the dominant “solutions” deployed to remediate food insecurity. Through their deliberately moralized, technologized, and depoliticized representation, these programs have secured a functional level of unassailability that precludes public involvement. By deconstructing the motives of these programs and repoliticizing the discussion of possible mechanisms for realizing the right to food, we can open up a space to look beyond the development industry for viable solutions. The Food Sovereignty Movement, as an extra-institutional force for just food systems, may present a more promising platform for eliminating hunger in Uganda."
