Cheia International Summer University 2022

The right to food.
International food standards and other current developments at International and European level
5-7 August 2022

The 28th edition of the International University of La Cheia was dedicated to the Right to Food, which has been enshrined in the "Universal Declaration of Human Rights" since 1948. This right has remained relevant to this day as one of the most violated rights at international level, famine affecting 10% of the world's population during the pandemic, an increase of about 118 million people since 2019. Food insecurity has increased since the mid-2010s, particularly in countries affected by conflict, climate change, economic recession or high inequality.
