Inequalities in food security & nutrition: a life course perspective

Hilde Bras

Inaugural lecture held on 4 December 2014

Abstract

Despite overall progress in global wellbeing, stark inequalities in food security and nutrition remain extant. How can we better understand who is at risk of hunger, malnutrition and food insecurity? And what are the consequences for people's lives? A life course perspective offers a lens for assessing and explaining food use and nutrition trajectories, and their effects on life course outcomes, within the changing social networks and wider socioeconomic and cultural contexts of people's lives.
