This paper explores the different dimensions of the recent dialogue about global food chains and the relevance their specific characteristics might have for the livelihoods of small-scale agricultural producers. It moves from describing positive and negative aspects of contract farming, to defining the role of corporations and their Corporate Social Responsibility strategies, and to exploring briefly the Fair Trade concept. Finally it describes the emersion of Multi-Stakeholders Global Partnerships where Civil Society Organizations can act as third parties for the establishment of win-win relationships in global value chains.
