RISING POWERS AND FOOD SECURITY GOVERNANCE: LESSONS FROM BRAZIL, INDIA, AND CHINA

According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FO), malnutrition is the main cause of diseases in the world. Food insecurity affects around 20 million children of preschool age, Therefore, it is important for national and international institutions to develop adequate policies to deal with hunger and malnutrition. The growing uncertainty around securing access to food is also why food security has become a core issue in the international agenda and a pivotal area of global governance change within a multipolar world order-one in which the Global South is becoming increasingly influential.Although FAO remains at the center of multiple multilateral governance structures, many other non-state entities, as well as traditional state actors, are engaged in this fight. This lecture demonstrates how Brazil, India, and China contribute to global governance in the area of food security. My aim is twofold; to understand how their particular challenges shape their approaches to food security governance, and to ascertain how non-core states are able to influence international norms regarding this issue
