Child Hunger and Human Rights: International Governance applies the human rights theory of legal obligation to the problem of child malnutrition and investigates whether duty-bearers have fulfilled their obligations to protect, respect and provide. This book includes moral, economic, political and legal components to the research on the childa€™s right to be free from hunger. Using two methods of investigation; the first a historical comparative method based on the systematic analysis of the content of historical materials, government documents, policy statements, state budgets, newspaper reports and other public records, and the second is statistical analysis. Apodaca investigates beyond the suffering, deformities, and deaths of children, to child malnutrition resulting in reduced physical and mental development threatening the childa€™s life opportunities, the prospects of further generations, and the growth of the economy. Examining the connection between governmental agricultural, economic and financial policies, international donor policies, and transnational corporate voluntary codes of conduct affecting child malnutrition rates, this book will be of interest to policy-makers, activists, students and scholars of human rights, social justice, international ethics, development, international relations and law.Santos Pais, M.(1999) A Human RightsConceptual Framework for UNICEF, Innocenti Essay No. 9, Florence: UNICEF ...
