LEMOS FIGUEROA, Marisel; BACA DEL MORAL, Julio  e  CUEVAS REYES, Venancio. Poverty and food insecurity in the mexican countryside: an unsolved public policy issue. Textual anál. medio rural latinoam. [online]. 2018, n.71, pp.71-105. ISSN 2395-9177.

The aim of this study was to analyze the causes of poverty and food insecurity in the Mexican countryside under the framework of public policy, with the purpose of contributing to the conceptual understanding of this problem through a documentary review with historical perspective. It addresses the conceptual development of food security, a priority issue on the public agenda with regulatory frameworks that have failed to guarantee the right to food. Food policies in Mexico are characterized by reflecting the international pattern of the food security approach, linked to the new global agri-food system, in which poverty and food insecurity constitute an opportunity for the corporate food regime that limits access to food for millions of people. of people. It is concluded that food security in Mexico has been limited to social policies to combat poverty, devoid of recognition as a structural problem of asymmetric economic development, so despite government efforts poverty and food insecurity has not been able to reverse. Finally, a knowledge dialogue is proposed between food safety and sovereignty approaches that contribute to the construction of alternatives with structural changes that, in addition to overcoming these two problems, will democratize the agri-food system in the country.
