Turkish Cypriot leader Dervi_ Ero_lu responds to the Greek Cypriot position on the core issue of transition to a federal state by putting forward the notion of equal partnership. In terms of guarantees and security, he insists that Turkey’s presence is imperative for Turkish Cypriot safety, and questions the Annan Plan as the basis for territorial adjustments, insisting that much has changed in the intervening 14 years since the plan was submitted in 2004.
A book regarding the international regulation of agriculture would not be complete without considering agricultural trade law. Trade agreements affect how and where agriculture is carried out, the methods and inputs used, the income of farmers, the food choices of consumers, and the types of regulatory measures states can take. For these reasons, this chapter focuses on agricultural trade law. In doing so, it blurs the artificial distinction made in this book between agriculture and other food system activities such as distribution. The first two sections of the chapter draw out the complex relationship between trade and food security to explore the components agricultural trade agreements require to be consistent with a rights-based approach to agricultural regulation for food security. Following this is an analysis of the World Trade Organization’s Agreement on Agriculture in terms of its practical implications and substantive provisions. Drawing the discussions together, this chapter concludes with comprehensive, ambitious reform recommendations.
