Abstract

In this short comment, I examine the debate between Olivier De Schutter, during his tenure as the UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food, and the then-Director-General of the WTO, Pascal Lamy. I first explore what global governance means. I conclude by outlining the limits of a global governance perspective and briefly consider how trade law might also be understood in terms of growing and eating, and making and exchanging. And I discuss a bit about gardening. This paper is part of a special issue on Food Security and International Trade Law.
