Political dynamics and decay in US Agricultural politics: What the new politics of food can teach Australia?

U.S. food and agriculture policy is under stress. Recent struggles over passage of agricultural legislation, known as the Farm Bill, point to an erosion of support for long-standing policies, the unraveling of political coalitions, and a breakdown in policy making institutions. Although current food and agricultural policies in the United States are likely to continue, recent developments indicate a weakening in the political sources of policy stability. These shifting political dynamics in US Agricultural politics has important implications for global markets, and especially key exporters such as Australia.

Professor Adam Sheingate will update us on the latest developments on the current Farm Bill and the broader political dynamics associated with food and agriculture in advanced economies.

Introduction by Professor John Wanna, Sir John Bunting Chair of Public Administration at ANZSOG and the ANU.

Moderated by Dr Amanda Smullen, Senior Lecturer Policy and Governance, Crawford School of Public Policy, ANU.
