Juan José Borrell in conversation with Camilo Rey

Geopolitics and food

Universidad de Cartagena, Sala de Lectura Biblioteca Fernández de Madrid (Claustro de San Agustín)
The Geopolitics researcher and lecturer Juan José Borrell (Argentina) will talk to students about his book Geopolítica y alimentos. The food supply system is a vital question for global geopolitics, and in recent decades international competition for resources has meant that food is now included in strategic and security considerations. In a world in which one in nine people suffer from hunger and in which, by 2050, it is estimated that there will be over 9.3 billion inhabitants, it is of particular importance to look at the factors affecting the food supply. Borrell’s text, the subject of this event, contributes to unpick the myths behind the future challenges of food. In conversation with Camilo Rey.
