Food Governance Conference 2019

University of Sydney

Date: 3 – 5 July 2019

Cost: early bird $160, full fee $200

In conjunction with the Charles Perkins Centre, Sydney Law School will be hosting the second Food Governance Conference in July 2019.

The 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
  • nutrition: under/malnutrition, obesity, and non-communicable disease.

While food-specific law and regulation will be a key focus of the Food Governance Conference, it will consider how broader legislative and policy regimes impede or facilitate access to a nutritious, equitable, and sustainable food supply, including economic, trade, and intellectual property regimes.

Keynote Speakers:

  • Professor Hilal Elver, UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food
  • Professor Amandine Garde, Director, Law and NCD Unit, University of Liverpool.

Abstract submissions close 22 February 2019.
