In the present report, submitted to the Human Rights Council resolution 46/19, the Special Rapporteur on the right to food gives an account of how different forms of violence in food systems harm people and generate the conditions that lead to human rights violations. Drawing from the received inputs, he shows how different interests and identities experience shared forms of violence and how food systems not only produce food but also amplify and produce violence that makes people more poor, vulnerable and marginalized.
