International and Domestic Trade Regulations to Secure the Food Supply

Christine Kaufmann, Caroline Ehlert

Abstract


In a time of global warming, of financial crisis, and of a crisis in food availability we need to ask how the food supply can be secured into the future. The present article considers the extent to which food security is at risk and considers how this risk is currently addressed through international and domestic trade regulation. It gives particular attention to the problems of the poor in the face of increasing biofuel production. It argues that sustainable results can only come about if the interests of the most vulnerable groups of the community are addressed at the international level. In particular, the current regulatory frameworks need to be enforced in order to ensure the food security of the world’s population.
