Food, Globalisation and Governance (MAME 4430)

Food is implicated in a multitude of the world’s most pressing questions about the environment, health, governance, and the global economy.

Different processes of change affect food supply, dietary patterns and nutritional outcomes. Of particular relevance is understanding of the specific consequences which different methods of food production and consumption have on the environment, health and food security.

The aim of the course is to introduce important concepts and principles from the contemporary debate on the governance of food production and consumption in a globalized world. The consequences of different methods of food production on environment, health and food security receive special attention.
