Resumen

GONZALEZ-NOLASCO, Juquila Araceli  y  CORDERO-TORRES, Jorge Martín. Politics of food and human rights in Mexico. Estud. soc. Rev. aliment. contemp. desarro. reg. [online]. 2019, vol.29, n.53, e19657. ISSN 2395-9169.  https://doi.org/10.24836/es.v29i53.657.

Objective:

Identify the actions (public policy) tending to generate the conditions that enable or not the materialization of the right to food, its effective realization, in the most marginalized areas of Mexico.

Methodology:

From a public policy perspective, the rights-based approach is applied as an appropriate methodological tool for analysis, design, and implementation of food policy. From the constitutionalist theory, it is proposed to know the state's obligations in the area of the right to food, explore the type of food consumed most often in marginalized areas of Mexico, as well as identifying the causes that limit or hinder the development of policies relating to the right to food.

Results:

In advance, in the national legal framework, with respect to guaranteeing the right to food is one of the significant findings in this study; however, access, quality and accessibility of food remains an urgent task for the country's most marginalized populations.

Limitations:

The data collected do not express the social and cultural reality of the communities with respect to the criterion of adaptability, that is, a culturally accepted diet (preferences) and the appropriate quantity (food rations).

Conclusion:

The right to food shall be guaranteed insofar that food security is recognized as a human right and not only as a necessity. Further discussion is needed to establish, if food policies provide a survival ration, or whether it is time to update the policies to provide a ration that supports the maintenance of a satisfactory state of health within the social contexts. It's a state-pending task.
