À propos de crises mondiales... Quel rôle de la FAO dans les débats internationaux sur les politiques agricoles et alimentaires ?

Abstract : This article looks at the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the standpoints it takes in debates over food and agriculture policies for development. Though it is the leading international organization in the field of food and agriculture policy, the FAO suffers from a credibility and legitimacy deficit. By way of explanation, our study posits a failure on the FAO’s part to make the most of its analytical and discursive resources, which in turn may be due to three types of determinants : first of all, its organizational culture, bureaucratic partitioning and leadership problems ; then, paralysis caused by internecine power struggles between Member States ; and, finally, major difficulties in forging outside alliances, whether with peasant organizations or in academia.
