The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games

ARTICLE by Thomas Pogge, published in Food Ethics (Journal of the Societies for Agricultural and Food Ethics)

Food Ethics, June 2016

Governments and their international agencies (FAO, World Bank) conceive of the eradication of hunger and poverty as a worthy wish that will eventually be realized through economic growth. They also make great cosmetic efforts to present as good-looking trend pictures as they can. Citizens ought to insist that the eradication of severe deprivations is a human-rights correlative duty that permits no avoidable delay. Academics ought to collaborate toward providing a systematic alternative monitoring of what progress has really been made against undernourishment and other poverty-related deprivations.
