Good and bad palm oil

Food security, paradigm shift and stakeholder negotiations in Indonesia and the EU (2023-2027)


This project seeks to understand how the recent war and global food crisis changed the opinions, context, and discourse on palm oil, and how these narratives affect the power relation among the stakeholders.

This multidisciplinary project takes a broader approach going beyond existing standalone case studies to examine palm oil negotiations and policies from the perspective of small producers in Indonesia, and policymakers and NGOs in the EU and Indonesia.
