    Regulating the Global Fisheries: The World Wildlife Fund, Unilever, and the Marine Stewardship Council. [REVIEW]Douglas H. Constance & Alessandro Bonanno - 2000 - Agriculture and Human Values 17 (2):125-139.
    This analysis uses an analytical frameworkgrounded in political economy perspectives of theglobalization of the agro-food sector combined with acase study approach focusing on the Marine StewardshipCouncil (MSC) to inform discussions regarding thecharacteristics of societal regulation in thepost-Fordist era. More specifically, this analysisuses the case of the emergence of the MSC toinvestigate propositions regarding the existence of,and location of, nascent forms of a transnationalState. The MSC proposes to regulate the certificationof sustainable fisheries at the global level throughan eco-labeling program. The MSC (...)

    The Four Questions in Agrifood Studies: A View From the Bus; the 2008 AFHVS Presidential Address.Douglas H. Constance - 2009 - Agriculture and Human Values 26 (1-2):3-14.
    The critical studies in the Sociology of Agriculture can be generally divided into four questions: Agrarian, Environmental, Food, and Emancipatory. While the four questions overlap and all address social justice concerns, there is a chronological sequence to the studies. In this presidential address presented at the joint meetings of the Agriculture, Food, and Human Values Society and the Association for the Study of Food in Society held in June 2008 in New Orleans, LA, I provide an overview of the four (...)

    A Tripartite Standards Regime Analysis of the Contested Development of a Sustainable Agriculture Standard.Maki Hatanaka, Jason Konefal & Douglas H. Constance - 2012 - Agriculture and Human Values 29 (1):65-78.
    As concerns over the negative social and environmental impacts of industrial agriculture become more widespread, efforts to define and regulate sustainable agriculture have proliferated in the US. Whereas the USDA spearheaded previous efforts, today such efforts have largely shifted to Tripartite Standards Regimes (TSRs). Using a case study of the Leonardo Academy’s initiative to develop a US sustainable agriculture standard, this paper examines the standards-development process and efforts by agribusiness to influence the process. Specifically, we analyze how politics operate in (...)

    The Emancipatory Question: The Next Step in the Sociology of Agrifood Systems? [REVIEW]Douglas H. Constance - 2008 - Agriculture and Human Values 25 (2):151-155.
    I provide an historical overview of the development of the Sociology of Agriculture as a critical response to perceived inadequacies of conservative theories of social change regarding rural society in general, and agriculture in particular. I do this by focusing on the three questions that have dominated the discourse on agrifood studies: “The Agrarian Question,” “The Environment Question,” and “The Food Question.” I analyze the success and constraints of selected alternative agrifood initiatives in relation to the three questions and introduce (...)

    Global Contested Terrain: The Case of the Tuna-Dolphin Controversy. [REVIEW]Douglas H. Constance, Alessandro Bonanno & William D. Heffernan - 1995 - Agriculture and Human Values 12 (3):19-33.
    Employing the case of the global tuna-fish industry, it is argued that the process of globalization is contested terrain as it opens “free spaces” to some classes or groups and closes “free spaces” to others; that the nation-States' regulatory abilities are weakened; and finally, that while some social movements may gain, others are marginalized. Three basic conclusions are reached. (1) The industry's actions were successfully “contested” by environmental groups supported by the legislative and judicial branches of the US State. (2) (...)

    Neoliberal Restructuring, Neoregulation, and the Mexican Poultry Industry.Francisco Martinez-Gomez, Gilberto Aboites-Manrique & Douglas H. Constance - 2013 - Agriculture and Human Values 30 (4):495-510.
    The US poultry industry based on flexible accumulation has been advanced as the model of agro-industrial development for agrifood globalization. Similarly, Mexico has been presented as a noteworthy example of the negative effects of neoliberal restructuring associated with the globalization project. In this paper we use both of these assertions as points of departure to guide an investigation of the case of the restructuring of the Mexican poultry industry. Informed by a commodity systems analysis, archival data and key informant interviews (...)
