"Achieving Food Security: The Politics of Why 'The System' Is Geared to Supporting Emergency Needs but Not to Building Long-Term Self-Reliance"


(Open to Current UChicago Students Only)




Tuesday, October 26



Photos of starving babies move governments to act, but photos of poor women working in the fields and sending their children to school draw no attention or funding. However, efforts spent to help build peace and prosperity have huge, positive long-term impacts. Why are these efforts not the top priority? What has been done to change the narrative? What can be done? What are the politics that stall reform?



Pritzker Fellows seminars are off the record and open to current UChicago students only. Seating in the IOP Living Room is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.


This convening is open to all students who are compliant with UChicago vaccination requirements and, because of ongoing health risks, particularly to the unvaccinated, participants are expected to adopt the risk mitigation measures (masking and social distancing, etc.) appropriate to their vaccination status as advised by public health officials or to their individual vulnerabilities as advised by a medical professional. Public convening may not be safe for all and carries a risk for contracting COVID-19, particularly for those unvaccinated. Participants will not know the vaccination status of others and should follow appropriate risk mitigation measures.
