Brazil’s Global Fight against Hunger and Poverty

  • Markus Fraundorfer
Part of the International Political Economy Series book series (IPES)


Chapter 4 begins with a short overview of the current situation in the global system of food security and introduces the main characteristics of Brazil’s Zero Hunger strategy. Thereafter, it focuses on Brazil’s activities on the discursive interface and analyses the official discourse Lula da Silva created in the global fight against hunger and poverty during his presidency. Next, the attention turns to the organisational interface by analysing Brazil’s role in the reform process of the FAO Committee on World Food Security in 2009. Subsequently, the chapter explores Brazil’s nodal design activities in globally disseminating key elements of the Zero Hunger strategy on the resource-transfer interface.
