FIAN Right to Food Journal Vol. 7 No. 1

The FIAN Right to Food Journal, formerly the Right to Food Quarterly, provides experts, activists and other interested persons with information and analysis on the right to food and on important trends concerning Economic, Social and Cultural rights.

In this issue, several articles deal with important new instruments to tackle the underlying  violations of the right to adequate food and related rights, including the FAO Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests.

A team of researchers from the University of Hohenheim explores how institutionalized gender discrimination and structural violence impose barriers to women’s enjoyment of the right to adequate food and nutrition.

Two articles report on country specific human rights violations, in the Philippines, under the government sponsored agrarian reform program, and in Honduras, where peasants are persecuted and criminalized as result of an agrarian conflict.

For these and other articles, please download the Right to Food Journal.
