@ Carleton University

Peter Andrée is currently Associate Professor and Associate Chair in the Department of Political Science at Carleton University. Before joining Carleton University’s political science department in January 2007, his educational journey led him from the natural sciences, through philosophy and community development, to environmental studies, geography and finally political science. He undertook post-doctoral research on rural food systems in Melbourne, Australia, before completing his PhD in the Faculty of Environmental Studies at York University in Toronto.

His research focuses on international and Canadian environmental politics, the political economy of agri-food systems, and community-based responses to the challenges of food security and agricultural sustainability. He is co-editor of “Globalization and Food Sovereignty: Global and Local Change in the New Politics of Food” (2014) and author of “Genetically Modified Diplomacy” (2007).
