Sep 15, 2016   |   Washington DC, USA    |   Ghada Ahmed, Danny Hamrick, Sona Nahapetyan, Gary Gereffi, Lincoln Pratson
MINERVA Annual Meeting
Subsidized food is a hallmark of food systems in MENA. Many citizens depend on government supported food for their livelihood. Consequently, volatility in global production and prices have significant implications for social unrest in the region. A Duke CGGC team has been researching this topic using the GVC framework to map the role of various public and private actors at the global, regional, and country level, as well as identifying major bottlenecks to wheat flows in the region and potential policy interventions. Researcher Ghada Ahmed presented some of the findings at the MINERVA Annual Meeting.
