    Uittreksel

    Driven by food-related health and envi-ronmental concerns, governments, private actors and civil society are increasingly thinking about new ways to organize the food system. As a result, new net-works are emerging that are characterized by a new type of governance and embeddedness. This paper discusses the need to consider the links between network characteristics, governance and embed-dedness to gain a deeper understanding of interde-pendencies in food networks. Based on an exploratory analysis of nine local food networks in Flanders, Bel-gium a socio-spatial network approach is presented. This approach includes the diversity of actors and institutions involved in food networks and how they are interconnected.
