Graduates Examine Global Hunger Issues

Spring 2012

Several recent Law School graduates have published papers in a new book analyzing globalization’s impact on the right to food throughout the world. Olivier De Schutter, the Samuel Rubin Visiting Professor of Law and the U.N.’s special rapporteur on the right to food, selected papers written by students in his 2008 seminar Globalization and Human Rights for inclusion in Accounting for Hunger: The Right to Food in the Era of Globalisation (Hart Publishing, Oxford: 2011). The book, which features chapters by Ann Sofie Cloots ’08 LL.M., Margaret Cowan Schmidt ’08, Boyan Konstantinov ’08 LL.M., and Jennifer Mersing ’08, was co-edited by Kaitlin Y. Cordes ’08.
