This course, one of the few if not the only in the world to address this critical subject matter, identifies and analyzes contemporary international legal and policy issues related to food including supply, safety, security, subsidies, and trade.

As the numerous issues connected with food have become ever more international, there has been a commensurate need for the adoption of rules and the creation of institutional infrastructure to govern interactions between governments, to regulate the behavior of food suppliers, and to protect public health and safety. This course examines those issues on the international level through the lens of law and governance.
