Feeding Global Inequality, 28 January 2021

Feeding Global Inequality

The seminar will host three scholars: Michael Fakhri, Associate Professor of International Economic Law at the University of Oregon School of Law and UN Special Rapporteur on right to food; Nadia Lambek, Doctor of Juridical Science (SJD) candidate at the University of Toronto, Fellow at the Institute for Global Law and Policy (Harvard Law School) and a Chancellor Jackman Graduate Fellow at the Jackman Humanities Institute (University of Toronto); and Luis Eslava, Reader in International Law and Co-Director Centre for Critical International Law (CeCIL) at Kent Law School. The panel will discuss the forms of inequality caused by issues of food and resource distribution in the global international order. The right to adequate food and nourishment is a long-standing international human right and, in spite of its apparent specialism, it is closely connected to the right to life and dignity and the possibility to enjoy a wide range of fundamental rights. The unequal distribution and exploitation of resources, however, makes access to food a struggle for many people in different countries and regions, in spite of the constitutional rights, national laws and policies, and international programmes aimed at achieving a sustainable redistribution of resources. Our panellists will share their insights and their unique perspectives with the audience in the conversational setting that characterises this year's edition of the CELI Peace Talks.
