Book Launch: Agriculture, Development, and the Global Trading System: 2000-2015



The last two decades have seen the deepening of the globalization process while worldwide poverty and hunger have been strongly reduced. Still, the international trade policy’s role in improving food and nutrition security for the world’s remaining 795 million undernourished people remains the subject of a long-standing and intense debate.

This book launch will discuss the relationship between the global trading system and food security, with a focus on the WTO’s Doha Development Agenda and whether trade instruments can manage food price volatility.
