Dear NYU community – we are excited to share this unique study abroad opportunity with you all! Please look to the links and description below to learn more. If interested, there are a number of students who went on this trip last summer – I’m sure we could get some stories from them! All NYU students are welcome to apply.

NYU Wagner Summer Course Abroad:

Food Security and Hunger in a Global Perspective

Instructors: John Gershman and Diana Beck

Accra, Ghana at NYU Accra / June 12–24, 2011

This course explores the political and economic policy issues surrounding hunger and food security, drawing on many case examples and using Ghana as a case study. The course will provide an overview of some of the core dimensions of global hunger and food security policy issues, including debates over a new green revolution, food aid, fair trade, the impact of expanded biofuels production, and the impact of the inter-related financial, food, and fuel crises. The class will incorporate visits to sites in Ghana and discussions with organizations involved in efforts to enhance food security.
