Description

This project aims to use the European Union’s Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) as a case study to explore why, which and how health considerations, and in particular nutrition-related disease, receive political priority in agricultural trade policy.

Project details

Methods include archival research on the history of health considerations in CAP agricultural policy, a review of the academic literature, and semi-structured interviews with key informants.  

These informants will be those involved in developing and representing CAP agricultural policy, those representing organizations involved in trying to raise the profile of nutrition-related health in CAP agricultural policy, and agricultural trade representatives from selected countries affected by CAP agricultural policy.
