In a workshop organized by the Arab NGO Network for Development (ANND), Dr. Giuliano Martiniello participated in the launching of the Fourth Arab Watch Report 2019 on Economic and Social Rights.
Held in Amman, Jordan (June 27), the workshop focus was the right to food. Dr. Martiniello’s chapter, Shifting the Paradigm towards Food Sovereignty in Middle East and North Africa: theoretical and practical challenges, explored the nexus between agricultural policies and the international food system; and the steps needed for implementation of a food sovereignty strategy. Academics, agricultural and development experts, representatives of civil society and trade unions interested in the food question in the Middle East and North Africa region participated in the meeting.
The Arab Watch Report on the Right to Food will be soon available in both English and Arabic.
