Food Governance Conference 2019: Abstract submission closes soon

Food Governance Conference 2019 2Food governance food 2

From the 3rd to the 5th of July this year, Sydney Health Law will host the second Food Governance Conference, along with the University of Sydney’s Charles Perkins Centre and The George Institute for Global Health.

The 2019 Food Governance Conference will explore how law, policy, and regulation address food system challenges or contribute to them at local, national, regional, and global levels. This includes issues such as food security, food safety, food sustainability, equity and social justice in global food systems, and nutrition: under/malnutrition, obesity, and noncommunicable disease.

The conference takes a broad, interdisciplinary approach, in the hope of highlighting the interrelationships between the main challenges facing the global food system in the 21st century, and to create new opportunities for collaboration between researchers, policymakers and practitioners in the related fields of food safety, security, and sustainability, and diet-related health.

The opening public oration will be given by Hilal Elver, the UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food.

Abstract submissions to the Conference close on Friday the 22nd of February.  For further information, or to submit an abstract, click on this link.

We hope to see you there!
