What is a peasant? What are peasantries?

In 2013, for the first session of the Intergovernmental Working Group on what would be the UNDROP, Marc Edelman, Professor of Anthropology at Hunter College (New York), wrote an article on the term peasant. This article is a “must read” for anyone wanting to understand the use of peasant in the UNDROP. To have the word peasant in the Declaration was an absolut politic objective for La Via Campesina and this article was a major contribution to the fulfillment of this objective.
