Enrol in Global Citizenship & Equity: World Hunger
Course Code: SOCI229
This is a study into the complex issue of world hunger. Drawing on a global citizenship and equity framework, you will closely examine and analyze the structural causes of hunger and poverty in Canada as well as at an international level. Common misconceptions will be explored which include the necessity of a second green revolution, trickle-down development, and the lack of productivity in small-scale farming. The course presents the analysis of hunger alleviation strategies through a food sovereignty perspective, exploring the right to food, access to land, control over resources and local decision-making. You will propose opportunities for surmounting the barriers to local hunger alleviation strategies within an international perspective.
