It starts with a brief account of the legal framework for trade in agriculture followed by a look at current agricultural trade policies and the instruments applied. It then analyses their impact on human rights, in particular the right to food. Finally, recommendations for shaping agricultural trade policies to enhance the right to food are presented.
