Smith (Author)Cited by: Food and nutritional security and human rights on the national development agenda 5. Conclusions Références CHAPTER 9. FROM INTERNATIONAL TO DOMESTIC LAW: THE CASE OF THE INDIAN SUPREME COURT IN RESPONSE TO ESC RIGHTS AND THE RIGHT TO FOOD COLIN GONSALVES The right to food is a human right recognized by international human rights law.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights recognizes, in the context of an adequate standard of living, that: “Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, ” (art. 25). As a result, a number of significant human rights commitments are reaffirmed in the Agenda, which is explicitly anchored in international human rights standards and affirms “realizing human rights for all” as its goal.

This is important, as the Agenda will determine development priorities at the national, regional and global levels from here to Human Rights and Choice in Poverty: Food Insecurity, Dependency, and Human Rights-based Development Aid for the Third World Rural Poor Alan G.

Smith Greenwood Publishing Group. This book addresses the legal issues raised by the interaction between human rights and development in contemporary international law. In particular, it charts the parameters of international law that states have to take into account in order to protect human rights in the process of development.

In doing so, it departs from traditional analyses, where human rights are mainly. Amartya Sen is an important author, economist, and philosopher for anyone in human rights work to know, and his book Development as Freedom () is a perfect example of his expertise and deep understanding of human development and the importance of human rights.

Sen argues that human freedom should be both the means and the end of development. The book is best described as a model for examining issues of development in both economic and political terms, and not as a formula for implementing change.

The right to meals and nourishment is the right of each and every man, woman and child to have guaranteed access to healthy food on a daily and regular basis. The human rights-based approach is a perspective and process that can lead more directly to increased enjoyment of human rights.

Development processes – traditionally technical and economically orientated - are becoming increasingly focused on enjoyment of rights and promotion of values. Through this focus on the development and implementation of a human right to food and nutrition security, the article concludes by emphasizing the importance of food and nutrition security to human dignity, the very foundation of human rights, and the opportunities that a human rights-based approach offers to improve the lives of vulnerable populations in a rapidly changing world.

The right to food, and its variations, is a human right protecting the right of people to feed themselves in dignity, implying that sufficient food is available, that people have the means to access it, and that it adequately meets the individual's dietary needs.

The right to food protects the right of all human beings to be free from hunger, food insecurity and malnutrition.Intended for healthcare professionals.
