Social dimensions of food and nutrition security form one aspect of the growing field of food studies. We introduce qualitative and mixed methods research designs that embrace the disconnect between diverse disciplines, and that further bridge the academic/non-academic divide, towards collaborative efforts between universities and civil society organizations, in order to inform and influence public policy. Theoretical approaches outlined are household-level indicators to assess food and nutrition security; sustainable livelihood approaches; community food security; food sovereignty; and rights-based approaches. Emphasis is being laid on ethical considerations and criteria for demonstrating rigor and trustworthiness of qualitative research.
