International Agricultural Law and Policy

A Rights-Based Approach to Food Security

Hope Johnson

Globalised agriculture and food systems are at the crux of significant issues facing humanity from the rise in diet-related diseases to water pollution and biodiversity loss. Yet, legal scholarship on the regulation of agriculture and food is only now emerging. This timely book provides the first systematic analysis of the public international rules influencing agriculture. Each chapter considers the regulatory instruments that intersect with different components of agricultural systems from land tenure and soils through to agricultural in-puts and trade.

Chapter 9: Conclusion and recommendations

Hope Johnson


This book began with recognition that food (in)security is a highly complex and contested concept that reforms to laws and other regulatory instruments will certainly not greatly alleviate alone. In Section 9.1, this chapter summarises the key findings as they relate to the criteria identified in Chapter 2 for a rights-based approach to agricultural regulation for food security. This section draws together overarching or common gaps, overlaps, and issues within the international regulatory framework for agriculture, which sets the basis for creative exploration of the possible directions and solutions, consistent with a human rights-based approach to agricultural regulation for food security. Accordingly, Section 9.2 explores more novel and transformative directions for the public international regulation of agriculture that could better contribute to the achievement of world food security.
