About

Overview

This  Food Politics and Sustainable Development  unique training programme from European School of Political and Social Sciences is combining theory and practice, allows students to gain a better understanding of the issues related to the politics of food and farming, and acquire the skills necessary to access key professional positions in public and private organisations.

Key features

Food and agriculture are fields in which major global challenges arise. In 2050, the world’s population is projected to rise to 10 billion people; and they all need to eat. The various ecological and social problems of the modern food system represent additional challenges. Questions related to the organisation and regulation of our agri-food system are complex and include the production, distribution, accessibility, and consumption of food, as well as issues related to poverty, public health, animal welfare, science and technology, and trade. How would a sustainable food system look like, and how can it be achieved?

The master’s degree in Food Politics and Sustainable Development examines the ways in which public authorities (regional bodies, nation states, European institutions, UN agencies) and private actors (individuals, farming communities and organisations, transnational businesses, researchers, NGOs, etc.) shape and transform the agri-food system. While the production of food is initiated at local level, its distribution and consumption often have global implications. Understanding, analysing and acting upon these implications is key to sustainably steer, govern and transform our food system in the future.

Career

  • Public administration at national and subnational level: ministries, regional and local authorities, but also other public administration agencies recruit experts in public policy.
  • International and European organisations: the European Union, the FAO, the OSCE or the European Environment Agency.
  • NGOs, Think Tanks, trade unions, interest groups and lobbies often recruit experts with backgrounds in political science and international affairs.
  • Businesses are increasingly recruiting people qualified in international affairs.
  • Academic career: students graduating from our MA can also access PhD programmes in order to pursue an academic career.
