Abstract

This chapter deals with the relevance of food diversity in international law from the perspective of culture as a fundamental value protected at the international level, by addressing the legal concepts of intangible cultural heritage and culture diversity. Particularly, it investigates whether the concept of food diversity could serve a proper legal function in the context of international cultural law.
