SD Podcast Number 30 - Natalie Koch; Food as a Weapon? The Geopolitics of Food and the Qatar–Gulf Rift
In this episode, we talk to Natalie Koch about her recent article on the food embargo imposed on Qatar by its regional neighbours in 2017 and the wider geopolitics of food it exemplifies. We discuss the long-standing persistence of the idea of “food as a weapon”, the entanglement of food security with discourses on territorial sovereignty, nationalism and geography, and the use of mixed methods to investigate complex empirical terrains. Hosted by Antoine Bousquet.
