Starvation Jurisprudence Digest

GRC’s unique starvation digest has been updated!

This unique tool analyses the findings of Commissions of Inquiry, International Courts, Panels of Experts and Fact-finding missions. It provides 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.

This digest is essential for practitioners seeking jurisprudence on how courts and accountability bodies have investigated and prosecuted starvation.

The Digest can be accessed here.
