The course title is Special Topics in Food and Resource Economics: Navigating the Opportunities and Risks in Global Food and Resource Governance. It is organized around the examination of real-world controversies in global food and resource governance  such as, but not limited, to global food crises, large-scale land acquisitions, and the agriculture negotiations at the World Trade Organization. We will use these cases as the basis to explore how an issue or problem comes to be placed on the international policy agenda, which actors get to participate in the global policy-making process, and why global policy-making efforts succeed or fail.
