The Ethics of Eating: Promoting Personal and Global Choices

The ethics of eating is a very topical issue with concerns about

a) food production and meeting the energy and nutrient needs of a growing global population

b) sustainability to ensure vital resources are appropriately managed

c) access to food recognizing marked disparities across populations

d) diverse, and often not health-promoting, drivers of food choice

e) civil liberties that may clash with population-based priorities. 

These issues are being studied individually, but a more comprehensive consideration that highlights their multiple interactions and identifies important understudied areas is needed.  This conference will assemble individuals with expertise in diverse relevant fields to assess the ethical and functional dimensions of these issues and to identify promising new research and practical directions.
