T.M.C Asser Annual Lecture: ‘The Right to Food, Violence, and Food Systems’ by Michael Fakhri
20 April @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm
“One of the main causes of hunger and famine is violence and armed conflict. In turn, armed conflict leads to more food insecurity. How then to get out of this vicious cycle?” says Michael Fakhri, UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food and an internationally recognised expert on food systems and human rights.
On April 20, 2023, Professor Fakhri will deliver the 8th Annual T.M.C. Asser Lecture in the Peace Palace in the Hague. The title of his lecture is: ‘The right to food, violence, and food systems’. To allow for a better understanding of how food systems operate and to reframe how the right to food is addressed in international law, Michael Fakhri will examine forms of violence in food systems in his lecture.
