The human, economic and even geo-political relevance of the food related issues barely needs emphasizing. EXPO 2015 has enhanced the international attention on it and the Charter of Milan - highlighting EXPO's 2015 philosophy and ambitions - precisely identifies those general and individual interests - from citizens' health and nutrition, to environmental sustainability - that require urgent attention and positive intervention by institutions, enterprises, science, media and individuals alike.
A specific attention and a more systemic focus on the great variety of statutes and rules governing the so vastly articulated "food world" are needed. Agricultural and industrial production, distribution and international trade, quality and safety controls, consumer information and health safeguard, scientific research and technological developments, environmental protection and bio-productions: these are just a few main facets of the complex prism of different, frequently interlinked activities concerning food. They are all of significant interest for lawyers, magistrates, business people, advisors and consumer movements, as well as for anyone dealing with food related, profit or non-profit, activities.
Moreover, in-depth and focused study, in an interdisciplinary and international perspective, is the basis for a concrete contribution to the search for updated and more efficient legal settings.
The LLM in Food Law of the LUISS School of Law precisely addresses such need of a comprehensive "analysis-cum-proposals" of the various profiles and main issues involved in the overall regulation concerning food, in the widest sense.
