Obiettivi formativi
There is an apparent conflict between the need to produce enough food for a growing global population and to ensure that the production of food is sustainable. Increased production requires technologies (agrochemicals, GMO, hormones, anti-biotics) and possibly increased land for agricultural production rather than forestry or even production of biofuels.

The object of this course is to examine how the law regulating the production of food emerges from these tensions and the current debates on reform are shaped. The students will be asked to examine these inherent conflicts and to determine the extent to which agricultural production can be changed to ensure sustainability both in the sense of the production of sufficient food and in the protection of the environment.
