- Publisher's Summary
- Hunger and other large-scale nutrition problems are global in scope and must be addressed as global problems-not merely as a series of national problems. Global Obligations for the Right to Food examines the obligations of the global community as a whole, especially in terms of the external, rather than internal, obligations of states.
