Credits: 3

While food security is a basic human right and an urgent global priority for people in countries rich and poor, the causes of food insecurity and the means to achieve it are subjects of intense controversy. Multiple discourses shape debates from food sovereignty and to sustainable food systems to the new Green Revolution. The role of global markets are central to these controversies, such as: How can geographical indications be used to enhance opportunities for trade? Was speculation the driver of recent price hikes in world food markets? From a cultural and ethical perspective, is the global intrinsically bad and is the local intrinsically good? Or how do global value chains help or undermine local food systems? This course, taught by two professors draws on Food Studies and Development Economics explores key policy approaches and challenges for food security in the context of the rapidly evolving global food systems. This course complements the GPIA course on International Trade.
