Global Food Policy and Food Security Symposium Series

FSI Stanford, FSE Series

FSE's Global Food Policy and Food Security Symposium series brings the world's leading policy experts in the fields of food and agricultural development to Stanford to participate in an integrated, twelve-lecture series on pro-poor growth and food security policy. Participants are addressing the major themes of hunger and rural poverty, agricultural productivity, resource and climate constraints on agriculture, and food and agriculture policy. The emphasis of the series is on the implementation of sound policies that will enhance agricultural production, incomes, and resource stewardship. Videos from past lectures can be found below. 

Participants are also writing significant papers that bring together new, relevant thinking about a particular topic area. At the end of the series, a volume of edited papers on international food security and food policy issues will be published. All program products will be freely available on the FSE website.

Finally, FSE has been working with Stanford's Program on International and Cross-Cultural Education (SPICE) to put together a high school unit on global food policy and food security in the 21st century. The unit is free to download and can be found here
