Starvation Jurisprudence Digest

July 2019.

GRC published its unique Digest on the Jurisprudence on Starvation. This unique tool analyses the findings of Commissions of Inquiry, International Courts, Panels of Experts and Fact-finding missions, by providing the relevant excerpts on situations of deprivation of food, blocking of humanitarian aid, attacks against objects indispensable for the survival of the population or the imposition of blockades or sieges. The Digest also focuses on violations of the right to food and water, as well as other violations of economic, social and cultural rights linked to famines, such as the right to health and shelter.

The Digest will be updated regularly and can be accessed here.
