New Article: “World Poverty and Food Insecurity”

New Article: Carmen G. Gonzalez, World Poverty and Food Insecurity, 3 Penn. State Journal of Law and International Affairs No. 2 (2014).  Abstract below:

Drawing upon the insights of philosopher Thomas Pogge, the article emphasizes the structural inequities in the global economic order that produce food insecurity. The article argues that chronic undernourishment is a function of international political and economic arrangements that systematically benefit the wealthy at the expense of the poor. It concludes with several legal and policy reforms that the United States and the European Union can adopt to reduce the burdens that our societies place on the world’s most vulnerable populations.
