Building on debates going back decades but given fresh impetus by controversies around the 2021 Food Systems Summit, a key focus of the ANH Academy this year is the role of human rights in securing equitable food systems. Complementing a focus on a right to food throughout the Academy Week, this side event will present state-of-the-art human rights research past and future, and facilitate discussion around what this means in practice for researchers, implementers, policymakers and citizens in low- middle- and high-income countries. The aim is to illustrate how the concept of human rights may be applied to issues relevant to ANH, and explore interest in generating a theme of work on rights in the Academy.
Before the event: Please post one or two burning questions about a right to food and nutrition, that presenters can address during the event.
After the event: We will let you know during the side-event how we can continue to interact during the Academy week, and look at ways of collaborating afterwards
