Prof. Dr. Andrea Lenschow, Osnabrück: "Governance für nachhaltige Güterketten in der Landwirtschaft am Beispiel des Sojahandels zwischen Brasilien und Europa"

The massive expansion of soy production in Brazil, dedicated for export largely to Europe and China and used mostly for animal feed, has contributed to a loss of access for local communities to land and water, particularly in highly dynamic frontier regions in the Cerrado. Soy certification standards like the multi-stakeholder Roundtable on Responsible Soy (RTRS) contain principles that are supposed to prevent such problems. Yet, auditing practices are not effective in protecting the rights and access of local communities to land and water due to three inter-related sets of factors: 1) the business-dominated nature of the drafting and content of the RTRS standard, 2) the structural limitations and everyday practices of auditing, and 3) domestic and local contextual factors in Brazil and western Bahía. New approaches are required to govern global commodity chains in a more environmentally just way. In the second part of the talk I will look at recent legislative proposals in Europe (EU and some member states) to govern global commodity chains with the aim to protect both the environment and human rights in the producing countries and ask whether and how they may fill some of the gaps left by private and multi-stakeholder governance.

Prof. Dr. Tine Hanrieder, LSE "Medicine from the Global South: The Diffusion of the Community Health Worker Model in the United States"

In the backyards of the American healthcare economy, a primary health workforce has emerged that is as idealistic as it is precarious. They call themselves community health workers or promotoras de salud (CHW/Ps), are mostly from minorities and female, and often work for charitable organizations, short-term demonstration projects, or for free. This talk describes the emergence of a workforce in the United States, which is usually associated with international development projects, but is increasingly valued by US health providers, researchers and policy makers. It focuses on the contentious professionalization of this workforce since the 1990s and thus on the moral and political economy of certifying CHW/Ps. Across the US, certificates have been heralded as a source of recognition and job stability, but are also fiercely resisted in the name of the community identity of CHW/Ps. This ongoing negotiation of the CHW/P identity constructs a global medical South in the United States, which is tailored to minority and migrant populations, rests on a “Southern epistemology” of community participation and popular education, and reproduces a racialized and gendered division of care and emotional labour in the US health economy.
