Global Food Security Governance: Capita Selecta course Period 1 (2015-2016)

There are just a few spots left in the new RSO Capita Selecta course on Global Food Security Governance: Linking Theory and Practice.

This Capita Selecta course will examine global food security governance from theory to practice. Making use of the key themes for research on food security as identified by the Expo 2015 EU Scientific Steering Committee, this course will give students the opportunity to:

  1. Explore the complexity of global food security governance;
  2. Focus on a key challenge that threatens global food security;
  3. Attend two international events (i.e., the 42nd Session of the Committee on World Food Security (Rome) and Expo 2015 (Milan)) to see, first hand, how global food security governance plays out.

More information about the course can be found here:
