    Food supply chain governance and public health externalities: Upstream policy interventions and the UK state. [REVIEW]David Barling - 2007 - Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics 20 (3):285-300.
    Contemporary food supply chains are generating externalities with high economic and social costs, notably in public health terms through the rise in diet-related non-communicable disease. The UK State is developing policy strategies to tackle these public health problems alongside intergovernmental responses. However, the governance of food supply chains is conducted by, and across, both private and public spheres and within a multilevel framework. The realities of contemporary food governance are that private interests are key drivers of food supply chains and (...)

    ‘The right thing to do’: ethical motives in the interpretation of social sustainability in the UK’s conventional food supply.Rosalind Sharpe & David Barling - 2019 - Agriculture and Human Values 36 (2):329-340.
    This paper explores the role of ethics and responsibility as drivers of a transition to a more sustainable agri-food system, by drawing on an investigation of the governance of social sustainability in the UK’s conventional food supply. The paper investigates how and why various non-state actors in the conventional food supply construe certain social obligations as being part of the remit of the food supply; whether ethics plays a motivating role; and the extent to which their activities are linked to (...)

    Organizing for thoughtful food: a meshwork approach.Kathryn Pavlovich, Alison Henderson & David Barling - 2021 - Agriculture and Human Values 38 (1):145-155.
    This paper provides an alternative narrative for organizing food systems. It introduces meshwork as a novel theoretical lens to examine the ontological assumptions underlying the shadow and informal dynamics of organizing food. Through a longitudinal qualitative case study, we place relationality and becoming at the centre of organizing food and food systems, demonstrating how entangled relationships can create a complex ontology through the meshwork knots, threads and weave. We show how issues of collective concern come together to form dynamic knots (...)
