Issue Description

Special focus on Food Policies in Transition

This Special Focus aims to contribute to the ongoing debate surrounding food policies, which are increasingly prevalent in urban areas worldwide, including Italy. These policies intervene in various aspects of food production, distribution and consumption, often with the aim of facilitating a just transition within the agri-food system and engaging diverse groups of stakeholders. The selected articles provide a general framework for integrating food policies into overall governance structures and explore specific topics such as food safety and public procurement.
