Course Description

78-393 Politics of the Agri-Food System F(3-0) [0.50]

Although the production and distribution of food is usually not primarily a function of government, in the 20th century government has been significantly involved in these areas. Questions about the proper role and scope of government involvement have been subject to constant debate, and the extent of this involvement has varied greatly depending on time and place. This course looks at how the state deals with the agricultural sector in different countries. It also explores the characteristics of different political, economic and societal models and their impact on the formulation of policies dealing with agriculture and food. (Offered in even-numbered years.)

Prerequisites: 78-140 or semester 5 standing.
