Project description:
The availability of and access to adequate food has always been conspicuously uneven around the world. Bearing in mind that food security has transnational dimensions and therefore calls for an international response, the aim of the research project is to examine the international legal foundations of food security and analyse how specialised branches of international law can address food security threats.
