Seminar: Right to Food and the Role of Economic and Social Policy in South Africa

South Africa leads the world in the development of legal provisions for economic and social rights yet SERF scores show mediocre performance in fulfilling the right to food. To examine this paradox, a seminar on the Right to Food and the role of economic and social policy was held at the University of Cape Town on May 30-31, 2012. Speakers and participants included leading researchers, jurists, parliamentarians and members of the National Human Rights Commission and the National Development Commission.
