Multi-functionality vs. food sovereignty? - This paper examines the conditions under which the two strategic concepts of "multi-functionality" and "food sovereignty" have emerged, refocusing the development narrative toward a politics of sustainability. Both multi-functionality and food sovereignty represent sustainable alternatives to neo-liberal political economy. The author argues about the necessity of a paradigmatic shift regarding the meaning of human development in order to revalue food and agriculture as foundations of civilization, in the epistemological sense, and as vectors both of social and ecological sustainability and of public health.

Key words: multi-functionality; food sovereignty; food regime; sustainability; food regime transition.
