"A Tale of Four Hungers"

Olivier De Schutter is a Professor at the Catholic University of Louvain and at the College of Europe (Natolin), and is currently a Visiting Professor at Columbia University. He is since 2008 the UN Special Rapporteur on the right to food. His most recent book is International Human Rights Law(Cambridge Univ. Press, 2010).

How to ensure the realization of the right to food in a world of scarce resources? The lecture will propose a diagnosis on hunger and malnutrition, based on the perspective provided by the human right to adequate food. It will describe the transitions that are required in the view of the lecturer, and how appropriate institutional frameworks and governance tools can contribute to achieving them.
