Vegetarianism in a Global Perspective

Forskningsinfrastruktur

Summary

This project’s purpose is to further our understanding of the role of vegetarianism by empirically studying interactions between regulation, production, trade and consumption in the case of the US. This research furthers interdisciplinary understandings of why and how the market for, and regulation of, vegetarian products is only slowly and unevenly expanding. 

This research is important because it will contribute to establishing a global, interdisciplinary research agenda on why and how emergent forms of vegetarian food regulation can sustain vegetarianism; it will add insightful contributions to the limited comparative and empirically-based literature on vegetarianism; and it is essential for understanding why and how vegetarianism can support the Sustainable Development Goals.
