Title: Neoliberal Policy in Action: A Critical Analysis of the Global Food Safety Initiative and Food Safety Governance
Authors: Driscoll, Elizabeth Ann
Advisor: Sumner, Jennifer
Department: Adult Education and Counselling Psychology
Keywords: Neoliberal
Food Safety
Issue Date: 28-Nov-2012
Abstract: Using a political economy analysis, this thesis examines the Global Food Safety Initiative and its effects on food safety governance. It begins with a discussion of food safety, an important component of food production systems, which attempts to ensure that food will not induce foodborne illness in the consumer. After outlining how neoliberalism is the current political economy environment in which the Global North operates, it argues that within this environment the Global Food Safety Initiative is rapidly becoming the predominant expression of neoliberalism to promote food safety. A political economic analysis of the Global Food Safety Initiative reveals that it is an indicator of the current neoliberal food regime and has significant consequences for the governance of both Canadian and international food safety.
