Methodological, empirical, as well as theoretical papers are invited for a comprehensive analysis of the aforementioned issues. The outcome will be the setting of an agenda with the necessary actions and regulatory measures to enhance sustainable food systems in the Mediterranean basin, from an individual and a social point of view.
