Urban agriculture is fashionable in developed countries and its boasts a rather positive image of community development. But how do these promises hold? In order to answer the question, researchers from Portland State University and the University of Michigan carried out a review of existing evidence in the United States and Canada. Their objective was to better map out the relationships between urban agriculture and food justice, defined as “the right of communities everywhere to produce, process, distribute, access and eat good food regardless of race, class, gender, ethnicity, citizenship, ability, religion or community”. Key words: Food justice, Urban and peri urban agriculture, Equity, Vulnerable people
