The video is officially posted in the site of the conference and I re-post it here as I was a participant in this session

This plenary brought together three esteemed speakers to explore critical issues related to the politics of knowledge and nurturing plural visions for equitable agriculture and food systems. Andrea Cornwall, Professor of Global Development and Anthropology, School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London, initiated the discussion with a presentation on ‘Decolonizing Gender and Development’. Amon Ashaba Mwiine, Lecturer in the School of Women and Gender Studies, Makerere University, then provided insights on ‘Plural feminisms, pathways & practices towards equitable food systems: visions for the future’. Finally, Tania Eulalia Martinez-Cruz, Postdoctoral Researcher, University of Greenwich, addressed the question ‘Whose food sovereignty? Encounters and discounters in transnational space: Reflections and lessons from Indigenous Peoples in Latin America’. The speakers then came together as a panel for a conversation with the audience. Moderator: Esha Shah, University Lecturer, Wageningen University.
