Is it possible to foster food security and sustainability in the context of global trade?Jennifer Clapp, 2013 Trudeau fellow will try to answer that question during the Trudeau Lecture / Big Thinking lecture, called "Navigating the global food fight: Trade, food security and the battle for policy space." This lecture explores how ideas about trade and food intersect with powerful interests, how current approaches too often become reduced to a binary understanding of options, and how opposing sides might move policy forward in constructive ways.

This event is presented in partnership with the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences.
