I would be grateful if you could circulate this information among your students and colleagues. This will be particularly interesting for students and practitioners working on agriculture, food and nutrition in low and middle-income countries.
Over the course of three weeks, participants will intensively study theoretical aspects and debates combined with case studies and critical methods around the areas of:
1) Global food-, nutrition- and health-related challenges,
2) Globalised food systems and implications for nutrition and health, and
3) Policy responses to hunger, malnutrition and poor health.
The Summer School provides knowledge on fundamental debates in these areas of study and policy-making and, crucially, stimulates critical thinking on these issues. Contents draw on a range of disciplinary perspectives, including political economy, nutritional science, and anthropology.
The summer school is designed for students and practitioners who wish to gain cutting edge knowledge on global food, nutrition and health-related challenges. While the programme is hosted by the Department of Economics, it does not require prior qualifications in economics or other relevant disciplines.
More information about the Summer School can be found on our website.
The Global Challenges to Food Security Summer School is organised by the Food, Nutrition and Health in Development Research Cluster and the SOAS Economics Department.
