NEXT UP FOR OUR GREAT DECISIONS FOREIGN POLICY LECTURE SERIES: One of
the WORLD’S most provocative and controversial policy experts!
March 2 “Stuffed and Starved: Global Food Issues”
Dr. Raj Patel, University of California, Berkeley
Riots in the streets of Cairo. Riots in the streets of Haiti. Riots in
the streets of Somalia. No, these are not uprisings aimed at
autocratic leaders or the manifestations of civil war, but of food
shortages. Massive food shortages.
A controversial author, journalist and food policy expert, Patel
focuses attention on the unfortunate irony of the current world food
situation, in which the imbalance of world resources has created
obesity in some parts of the world while millions endure starvation.
He addresses the entire system of global food production, distribution
and sale, concluding that "unless you're a corporate food executive,
the food system isn't working for you." Find out what WE can do . .
