The Key Global Negotiations
and Agreements

International agreements often seem hard to understand and legalistic. In reality, they are very difficult to arrive at and involve complex, long negotiations among states with different interests. It is the outcome of these machinations that produce agreements that come to have legal force and affect all our lives.

The following chapters discuss several key texts to show how various international agreements arose and some of the power plays and interests that lay behind them. Key points from the agreements are discussed, along with how they relate to each other and the complex connections that are developing. The aim is to inform and so help facilitate wider participation in shaping the rules that govern us and affect our food future.
