Kristin Sampson uses a feminist political economy (FPE) framework to analyze the U.S. commercial poultry industry as an exemplifier of a production model that is being replicated in poultry sectors across the globe as well as in other livestock, agricultural, and industrial sectors. Trade and investment liberalization brings the industrial model into direct contact with the traditional systems of raising chickens which still feature prominently in developing countries. In light of FPE, how does the industrial poultry production model fare in terms of advancing the sustaining and flourishing of life and providing sustainable livelihoods?
