Abstract [en]

Food security as defined by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) “exists when all people, at all times, have physical and economic access to sufficient, safe, and nutritious food to meet their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life.” This master’s thesis project is to be understood as the preliminary research for a future project focusing on implementing a participatory action research based approach with  multi-stakeholder groups in the Tulsa community. The hope is to create a renewed common ground of action to facilitate efforts at reducing food insecurity, strengthening food security, and help create stronger sustainable local food systems and community. The local discourse on food security is examined in light of food sovereignty, sustainable development, and principles of participatory action research (PAR). A literature review along with multi-stakeholder interviews were used to acquire the data. The findings indicate the local food and food insecurity discourses in Tulsa are contested within and between stakeholders. To progress the discourse further and to explore the points of contention between stakeholders a PAR engagement is proposed
