Title of Presentation : A Treaty to Secure the Right to Food

Names of all Presenters : Gwynne Skinner

Short Abstract : In this session, we discuss the international law regarding the right to food that currently exists, and whether a treaty on the right to food is a natural progression on the right, and whether such a treaty is needed in order to secure the right to food (which the presenter believes to be the case). We will explore a current draft treaty and discuss how the treaty might be improved. We will also discuss possible strategies in securing such a treaty through the United Nations, and how those who are interested might work collaboratively on securing such a treaty.
