Acknowledgements

We are immensely grateful to a large number of people who have contributed in various ways to publication of this book. It has been a long process in which we have sought feedback throughout the development of the book. This process involved: many one-on-one consultations and discussions with people involved with food, agriculture, biodiversity and intellectual property issues from a variety of backgrounds, including staff in a range of international organizations; dialogues at different stages of the book; and a very broad peer review process. The first dialogue was hosted by the Centre for Rural Economy at the University of Newcastle, UK. The second dialogue was hosted by the Quaker International Affairs Programme (QIAP) in Ottawa. The final dialogue was held in Geneva and was hosted by the Quaker United Nations Office. We are also grateful to the participants in, and farmers we met through, the international gathering 'From Seeds of Survival to Seeds of Resilience' in Ethiopia in November 2006.

We received rich feedback from a wide range of reviewers and had very concrete, insightful and stimulating discussions in the dialogues. At the risk of missing some people out we would specifically like to thank all of those who took part in the dialogues and reviewed some or all the chapters, including: Frederick Abbott, John Barton, Terry Boehm, Sara Boettiger, Eric Chaurette, Carlos Correa, Susan Crean, Soma Dey, Carol Dixon, Caroline Dommen, Andrew Donaldson, Tewolde Berhan Gebre Egziabher, Peter Einarsson, Harriet Friedmann, Felix FitzRoy, Michael Gollin, Jonathan Harwood, Corinna Hawkes, John Herity, Lionel Hubbard, Brewster Kneen, Ted Lawrence, Richard Lee, Carlo Leifert, Lucie Lemieux, Sarah Lieberman, Niels Louwaars, Philip Lowe, Andrew MacMillan, Tom MacMillan, Ron Marchant, Duncan Matthews, Christopher May, Tracey McCowen, Eric Millstone, Patrick Mulvany, Davinia Ovett, Barbara Panvel, Ditdit Pelegrina, Jeremy Phillipson, Veena Ravichandran, Dwijen Rangnekar, Chris Ray, Jack Reardon, Tim Roberts, Wayne Roberts, Chris Rodgers, Eric Ruto, Josh Sarnoff, Nicola Searle, Dalindyabo Shabalala, Devinder Sharma, Lucy Sharratt, Carin Smaller, Jim Sumberg, Steve Suppan, Awegechew Teshome, Carl-Gustaf Thornström, Gary Toenniessen, Ruchi Tripathi, Rob Tripp, David Vivas-Eugui, Joachim Von Braun, Kathryn Wilkinson, Hironori Yagi, Neil Ward, the Secretariat staff of several intergovernmental organizations, and Geneva-based WTO and WIPO negotiators.

We are, of course, also deeply indebted to the contributors for sharing their knowledge and insights (and who have stuck with us through the lengthy process). We also thank Sanda Wiens, the QIAP assistant, who assisted in: coordinating the logistics for the dialogues; developing the database for the peer review process; developing the list of organization resources and references; and editing and formatting the draft manuscript. We also pay tribute to the staff at Earthscan for their support and help throughout, in particular Rob West, Alison Kuznets, Hamish Ironside and Gudrun Freese.

This book would not have happened without the support of the Canadian Quakers through the Quaker International Affairs Programme and funding from the International Development Research Centre in Canada as well as support from their officers, in particular Jean Woo, Brian Davy, Bill Carman and Rob Robertson. We would like to thank the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust, which, through
