Dr Kelly Parsons


My research focus is policy and governance related to food systems, covering global, EU, national and local levels. My research interests include: food policy – past and present; policy integration; policy coherence; food governance arrangements; and systems approaches to food. 

My recent research created what I believe to be the first map of government actors and activities on food (in England), and investigated how food policy is currently connected across government departments, and where disconnects between issues and activities are perceived to be undermining the coherence of food policy.

I am author of a series of accessible briefs on food systemsintegrated food policypolicy coherence, and food governance, and of a policy brief - commissioned by the Austrian Presidency of the European Union - on ‘Connecting Food Systems for Co-Benefits’
