Title

Food from peace: breaking the links between conflict and hunger

Author

Messer, Ellen; Cohen, Marc J.; D'Costa, Jashinta

Description

The authors show how hunger is often a direct result of violence, as warring parties lay siege to cities, destroy food supplies, devastate productive capacities, and demolish social structures. Hunger can also be the source of conflict. The paper recommends new thinking to break the hunger-conflict chain.
