  2. "Towards Sustainable Food Systems: A Tale of three Transitions"
    by Oliver De Schutter, Professor, University of Louvain and UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food
    November 7, 2013, Buchanan Hall 1940, UCSB

    The global food regime that has been dominant since the post-Second World War era has defined increasing food availability and reducing the cost of food to the end consumer as its primary objectives. The insufficiencies of this approach are now widely acknowledged. But denouncing the failures of the "low-cost" food system that has gradually developed has become insufficient. We now need to identify ways to change it. The lecture will explore how transition can be conceived, which levers could be use to move to sustainable food systems, and what opportunities should be seized.

    Olivier De Schutter, professor at the University of Louvain (UCL) and at the College of Europe, is since 2008 the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the right to food. A specialist on economic and social rights in the context of economic globalization, he has published reports on a range of topics related to global hunger, including on the contribution of gender empowerment to food security, the potential of agroecology, or the relationship between agriculture, food, and health, in both poor and rich countries. He currently is a visiting professor at UC Berkeley, associated with the newly established Berkeley Food Institute.
