Accountability for Mass Starvation: Testing the Limits of the Law

The Project

Global Rights Compliance in partnership with The World Peace Foundation combine their expertise on conflict and food insecurity to identify how international law may be used to advance the prevention, prohibition, and accountability for mass starvation. Delineating the elements of starvation crimes, disentangling what is permissible and impermissible in warfare, and understanding the complementary enforcement regimes, will help to clarify the law and build a range of relevant skills enhancing the potential for redress and accountability.
