For more than 55 years, Pat has worked within international civil society and is the author or co-author of several books on the politics of seeds, agrobiodiversity, biopiracy and new technologies including genomics and nanotechnologies and Big Data.

Pat is a recipient of the Right Livelihood Award (1985) in the Swedish Parliament, the Pearson Peace Prize (1998) from Canada’s Governor General and the American Giraffe Award (for “sticking his neck out”) and received honorary doctoral degrees from the University of Waterloo (Canada) and the 17 Advanced Research Institutes (Mexico) in 2017.

In 2021, Pat was lead author for the IPES – Food/ETC “Long Food Movement” Report (2021 – 45). In 2017, he led the IPES – Food study on agribusiness concentration, “Too Big to Feed” and authored another report for the German Rosa Luxembourg foundation on big data in agriculture titled, “Breaking the Chain”. He is retired and living with his wife, Susie Walsh, in rural Québec. Together, Pat and Susie share six children and (so far) 11 grandchildren.
