Recent episodes of high and unusually volatile food prices have raised a number of concerns about the role of agricultural export restrictions in raising prices on world markets, in particular due to the impact that such measures have on food insecure consumers in net food-importing developing countries.  At the same time, a number of reasons have been invoked to justify the use of these measures, ranging from domestic food security and revenue collection through to a desire to support the development of particular national industries or economic sub-sectors.

At this dialogue, Prof. Giovanni Anania of the University of Calibria will discuss the implications of current disciplines on agricultural export restrictions for trade and food security and explore possible options in this area for the future.
