Constantly evolving market forces, socioeconomic trends local, national and international policies transform food systems in diverse and complex ways. An important aim of this course is to explore, research, and analyse how these socioeconomic trends and public policies impact on businesses, global corporations, households, producers, retailers, consumers and governments. Issues we address include economic development, growth, trade, climate change, technology, food safety, nutrition, health, diet, intellectual property rights, resource management, finance, retail markets and risk. This seminar-based course requires students to grapple with the same kinds of decisions and dilemmas policy makers and business leaders confront. Students assess information, evaluate strategies and practice teamwork skills to resolve complex issues. Students learn to examine the connection between the diverse parts and the whole of a particular issue. The course is designed to help students write effectively and communicate their ideas with clarity.
