Description
Summary:Publisher's description: In 'The Right to Food and the World Trade Organization's Rules on Agriculture : Conflicting, Compatible, or Complementary?', Rhonda Ferguson explores the relationship between the human right to food and agricultural trade rules. She questions whether States can adhere to their obligations under both regimes simultaneously. These two regimes are frequently portrayed to be in tension with one another. The content and contours of the right to food under international human rights law and WTO rules on domestic supports, export subsidies, and market access are considered from the lens of norm conflict theories. The analysis is situated within the context of the debate surrounding the fragmentation of international law.
