Abstract:

This paper examines the possible contribution of genetically modified food to the realisation of the right to adequate food. I argue that innovations such as genetically modified food can be treated as a useful tool to solve diverse global social and economic problems, although they are not an ultimate remedy. This paper will be based on the assumption that threats to food security, along with technological risks, should be defined as a new category of threats to international security. The concept of human security, which is based on the assumption that present-day security studies should take into account the needs of the individual, is the primary analytical approach.

Keywords: Right to Adequate Food, Genetically Modified Food, Human Security, Securitisation
