Food

Introduction

Food - Research Guide International Law

In the 20th century science and technology changed the agricultural sector enormously in many industrialized countries. The implications for both developed and developing countries in the agricultural sector, rural development, food security, food safety, the Codex Alimentarius, the environment, the green revolution, Genetically Modified Food (GM Food or biotech foods), trade, etc., are the subject of this research guide.

This Research Guide is intended as a starting point for research on Food. It provides the basic legal materials available in the Peace Palace Library, both in print and electronic format. Handbooks, leading articles, bibliographies, periodicals, serial publications and documents of interest are presented in the Selective Bibliography section. Links to the PPL Catalogue are inserted. The Library's systematic classification → Public international law and subject heading (keyword) Food are instrumental for searching through the Catalogue. Special attention is given to our subscriptions on databases, e-journals, e-books and other electronic resources. Finally, this Research Guide features links to relevant websites and other online resources of particular interest.

  • Maidana-Eletti, M. and P. Lang, Global Food Governance : Implications of Food Safety and Quality Standards in International Trade Law, Bern, Peter Lang, 2016.

    Maidana-Eletti, M. and P. Lang, Global Food Governance : Implications of Food Safety and Quality Standards in International Trade Law, Bern, Peter Lang, 2016.

    With increasingly globalised markets, changing consumer preferences and the steady development of technologies influencing food trade flows, safety and quality concerns have triggered the development of new forms of global (food) governance. Since its creation in 1995, the World Trade Organization (WTO) has succeeded in providing a multilateral legal framework for the development of regulatory practices through its multiple agreements. Similarly, the continuing importance of regional and bilateral trade agreements, such as in the European Union and in Switzerland, has enhanced WTO's accomplishments through a comprehensive and dynamic set of international rules and standards for trade. However, the changing trends in the production and distribution of food products have questioned the effectiveness of the regulatory status quo. This book addresses the legal aspects of the current global architecture for food governance, particularly with regard to the role of international standards. In doing so, this work attempts at mapping the implications of domestic food measures in international trade law.

  • Norer, R., Genetic Technology and Food Safety, Cham, Springer, 2016.

    Norer, R., Genetic Technology and Food Safety, Cham, Springer, 2016.

    The volume gives an overview on how legislators all over the world have come up with different legal solutions for governing genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and food security and provides a compact summary of the existing regulations in this field. In a comparative legal approach, a general report analyses and compares these various national and supranational legal systems. It closely follows the newest developments at the interface between genetic engineering law and food law. The emergence of a new technology usually leads to fundamental questions as to how the law should respond to it. The regulation of genetically modified organisms is a prime example, they have been discussed controversially ever since they were subject of legislation and regulation. In particular, this applies to the use of GMOs in food production. There is a variety of interesting legislations and a differentiated width of legal frameworks on international, supranational (EU) and national level to be found. The different regulations that thereby came to light are evidence of the various opinions and policies the societies and states have developed on this matter. It is this variety of regulations the volume examines, primarily on the basis of national reports that were handed in concerning the topic of genetic technology and food security at the occasion of the XIX International Congress of Comparative Law.

  • Lang, T., Food Wars : the Global Battle for Mouths, Minds and Markets, London, New York, Routledge, 2015.

    Lang, T., Food Wars : the Global Battle for Mouths, Minds and Markets, London, New York, Routledge, 2015.

    In the years since publication of the first edition of Food Wars much has happened in the world of food policy. This new edition brings these developments fully up to date within the original analytical framework of competing paradigms or worldviews shaping the direction and decision-making within food politics and policy.
    The key theme of the importance of integrating human and environmental health has become even more pressing. In the first edition the authors set out and brought together the different strands of emerging agendas and competing narratives. The second edition retains the same core structure and includes updated examples, case studies and the new issues which show how these conflicting tendencies have played out in practice over recent years and what this tells us about the way the global food system is heading. Examples of key issues given increased attention include: nutrition, including the global rise in obesity, as well as chronic conditions, hunger and under-nutrition; the environment, particularly the challenges of climate change, biodiversity loss, water stress and food security; food industry concentration and market power; volatility and uncertainty over food prices and policy responses
    - tensions over food, democracy and citizenship and social and cultural aspects impacting food and nutrition policies.

  • Kanalan, I., Die universelle Durchsetzung des Rechts auf Nahrung gegen transnationale Unternehmen, Tubingen, Mohr Siebeck, 2015.

    English summary: Is the right to food universally enforceable? Can it be enforced on transnational corporations? Ibrahim Kanalan critically discusses the justiciability of enforcing the right to food, as well as the accountability of such companies in terms of human rights, and shows ways to implement the right.
    German description: Ibrahim Kanalan widmet sich der Bekampfung von Hunger. Er geht der Frage nach, ob das Recht auf Nahrung universell einklagbar ist und gegen transnationale Unternehmen durchgesetzt werden kann. Er setzt sich grundlegend mit den Einwanden auseinander, die gegen die universelle Justiziabilitat sozialer Menschenrechte eingebracht werden. Mit einer ausfuhrlichen Analyse der verschiedenen globalen Normen sowie der Rechtsprechung auf internationaler, regionaler und nationaler Ebene zeigt der Autor, dass das Recht auf Nahrung universell einklagbar ist. Sodann systematisiert er die verschiedenen Rechtsanspruche in Auseinandersetzung mit der fragmentierten Spruchpraxis zahlreicher Gerichte und quasi-gerichtlicher Organe. Ibrahim Kanalan entwickelt ein neues und unkonventionelles Konzept, mit dem er die unmittelbare Bindung von Unternehmen an die Menschenrechte begrundet. Von einem rechtspluralistischen Verstandnis ausgehend analysiert er abschliessend verschiedene Moglichkeiten der transnationalen Durchsetzung des Rechts auf Nahrung.
