Research output: Book/ReportOther report


Poverty Eradication: Access to Land, Access to Food brings together the lectures of distinguished scholars, professionals and experts at the International Summer School held in September 2014 at ASERI, the Graduate School of Economics and International Relations of Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Facing the urgent challenge of ending poverty and hunger, combining ethical orientation with realistic policy options and cooperation practices», this e-book offers to a larger audience the opportunity of learning about interdisciplinary aspects of fighting poverty and hunger, and about agency for recognizing, affirming and defending human dignity. In a world where rural hunger is a paradoxical reality, the sustainable growth of agriculture should be a priority for the international development agenda. Ending poverty and hunger requires realizing an equitable access to land, and the adoption of inclusive production models specifically targeted to small farmers and women, whose work is both source and expression of their human dignity. This same work can secure access to food both for farmers themselves, and for the communities that live in. Contributors include professionals and academics of different disciplinary background, including Anni Arial, FAO; Birgitte Feiring, Charapa Consult; Miquel Gazssiot i Matas, Universitat Ramon Llull, Barcelona; Christophe Golay, Geneva Academy of International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights; Michael Taylor, International Land Coalition (ILC), along with Pier Sandro Cocconcelli, Vittorio Rossi e Roberto Zoboli of Università Cattolica
