Koen Dekeyser at the Right to Food seminar

GovInn’s researcher Koen Dekeyser participated in the Legal Resource Centre‘s Right to Food seminar in Johannesburg, 25-26 March 2019. In the seminar, pathways to implement South Africa’s constitutional Right to Food where discussed. In short, the right to food is a human right recognised under national and international law, which protects the right of human beings to access food and feed themselves. While Section 27(1)(b) of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa states that, ‘everyone has the right to have access to sufficient food and water’, implementation is lacking while malnourishment remains large.
