A World Without Famine? New Approaches to Aid and Development

Published on 1 January 1997

This selection of papers, from the proceedings of the Development Studies Association conference held in Dublin on the 150th Anniversary of the start of the Great Irish Famine, examines the historical background and the reasons why the spectre of famine continues to haunt much of the developing world today. These are set in the context of the concepts of food security and insecurity in order to emphasise our moral responsibility to act collectively to tackle not only famines but also less dramatic forms of food insecurity. Th book brings together the perspectives of eminent academics and policy-makers to give a comprehensive account of the threats to food security and the new approaches in aid to tackle them.
