Abstract

Over the course of the past decade the human right to adequate food has definitively emerged as a normative response to widespread food insecurity, global food crises, and to the related phenomenon of agricultural “land grabbing.” This article considers both the progress and pitfalls in using the “right to food” framework to meet the paramount challenge of ensuring equitable and sustainable access to sufficient, nutritious food for all.
