MOSAIC (MOndialisation, organiSAtIon, Consommation)

Coordinators : Sabine Duvaleix and Angela Cheptea

The MOSAIC research program covers theoretical and empirical analyses in international, industrial, geographical and consumer economics, with applications mainly to the agricultural, food and retail sectors. Our work in this area focuses on evolving societal challenges, strategies of economic agents and public policies, and addresses three main research themes :

International competitiveness and revisited trade gains

Firms’ strategies in terms of quality, public and private standards, major economic players (retailers, multinational enterprises, etc.), the redistributive and environmental effects of international trade agreements (e.g. on food security, use of water resources, use of pesticides, job market).

Coordination of Agri-food supply chain and territorial governance

Distribution of margins along value chains, the geographic concentration of production, meeting the societal expectations in terms of environment and product quality, cooperatives and their involvement in the agroecological transition, circular economy, advantages and limits of a spatial reorganization of agricultural production in order to feed urban population.

Consumption, sustainable attributes and quality of life

Farm-to-fork strategies, determinants of the consumption of market and non-market goods, intrinsic vs. sustainability attributes of food products, landscape planning in urban and suburban areas (urban vegetation, quality of life, acceptable environmental and socio-economic transition).
