Food Security, Conflict, and the Global Economy

Food insecurity emerges from the complex interplay of poverty, barriers to access, and local and global markets, but also from specific policies enacted by governments.

This project addresses the roles that international markets, conflict, and government policy play in creating food insecurity, as well as roles for the international community and development organizations in combating it.
