The story is told through a specific case study of genetically engineered seeds purportedly made to be \'climate-ready\'. Two narratives of hunger run through the storyline: the prevailing neoliberal narrative that focuses on increasing food production and relying on technological innovations and private sector engagement, and the oppositional and aspirational food sovereignty narrative that focuses on improving access to and distribution of food and rejects technological innovations and private sector engagement as the best solutions. This book argues that the way in which voices in the neoliberal narrative use international law reinforces fundamental assumptions about hunger and climate change, and the way in which voices in the food sovereignty narrative use international law fails to question and challenge these assumptions.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"Cover; Half-title; Series information; Title page; Copyright information; Contents; Prologue; Introduction: Feeding the World in Times of Climate Change; 1 Climate Change, Hunger, and International Law; 2 Perspectives on Hunger: Production versus Access; 3 So-Called Climate-Ready Seeds as a Possible Adaptation Strategy; 4 The Role of International Law in Feeding the World; 5 Narratives of Hunger and the Pyramid of Assumptions; 1 Climate Change, Narratives of Hunger, and International Law; 1.1 Hunger and Climate Change; 1.1.1 Hunger in Times of Climate Change<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/8961852472<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Electronic books<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isPartOf<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/8961852472#Series\/cambridge_studies_in_international_and_comparative_law<\/a>> ; # Cambridge studies in international and comparative law ;<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:name<\/a> \"Narratives of hunger in international law : feeding the world in times of climate change<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:productID<\/a> \"1090813268<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/doi.org\/10.1017\/9781108670906<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/public.ebookcentral.proquest.com\/choice\/publicfullrecord.aspx?p=5745433<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/search.ebscohost.com\/login.aspx?direct=true&scope=site&db=nlebk&db=nlabk&AN=2046193<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/www.vlebooks.com\/vleweb\/product\/openreader?id=none&isbn=9781108652179<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9781108652179<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9781108670906<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nwdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/1090813268<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
