About the Authors
  • The food and financial crises of 2008 and 2009 have pushed millions more people into poverty and hunger, while changing the parameters of international trade. Both crises have also challenged the fundamentals of WTO rules regulating agriculture, which had been designed to combat trade distortions due to artificially low-priced food commodities. This collection of essays examines to what extent the multilateral trading system contributes to food security in today's volatile markets. Bringing together a renowned group of expert economists, lawyers, environmental and development specialists, it offers a fresh and multi-dimensional perspective combining a strong economic analysis with a comprehensive legal assessment of the interface between food security and international trade regulation. Together, the contributions provide concrete policy recommendations on how the WTO could play a positive role in preventing or mitigating future food crises and promote global food security.

    • Proposes a new analysis of the role of international trade and the WTO in food security in the context of food and financial crises, giving readers an idea of the future role of the WTO in the context of increasingly volatile commodity markets
    • Cross-disciplinary content allows readers to understand the interface between economic, legal, environmental and political aspects of international trade, food security, and agricultural policies
    • Policy-oriented analysis allows readers to see the policy implications of the subject matter. Will appeal to policy makers and trade practitioners who would benefit from sound policy recommendations made by renowned scientists
