This research project proposes a comparative study between two socio-territorial movements that comprise the Via Campesina: the Ladless Workers Movement (MST), from Brazil, and the Land Worker's Alliance (LWA), from United Kingdom. Both movements are socio-territorial, as the appropriation of space is vital for the achievement of their political goals. The research aims to understand how these movements create alternative markets seeking to balance the need for peasant income and the demand for healthy food in urban centres. We seek to compare the different realities experienced by the movements, as well as the challenges, limitations and possibilities of creating new markets. To achieve these objectives, we will carry out bibliographical research, fieldwork and systematisation of quantitative and qualitative data. We hope that the research will demonstrate the potentialities of food markets led by socio-territorial movements. (AU)
