The Politics of Food and the Fight Against Hunger: Reflections and Lessons from Uganda

The authors of this extensive review argue that achieving food security in Uganda is an effective means of curtailing civil strife, violence, and insecurity. The paper examines how the certain macro-economic indicators, as well as globalizing food markets, have had harmful impacts on local food prices in Uganda–including a reported 432% increase in the cost of beans (100kg) between 2007 and 2011.
