Abstract:     
This Article makes the case for food security law and policy as a component of global environmental law in recognition of the global economy, trade liberalization, and concerns for food safety and environmental harm. It further lays out rule of law as a significant force in mitigating food safety concerns and pollution in China. Part II explores global food safety concerns in the context of U.S.-China relations, while Part III shows how cooperative agreements are emerging in global environmental governance as the U.S. Food & Drug Administration now has an on-the-ground presence in China. Part IV shows how increased rule of law may mitigate environmental harm and food safety concerns in China. The Article concludes by making the case that increased international cooperation on traditionally domestic issues is both likely and desirable, and makes the case for increased rule of law efforts in the developing world.
