Session 1A: Culture and socio-economic exclusion driving food and nutrition security in the EU and beyond

Discrimination and marginalization can undermine food and nutrition security by limiting access to food, health care and more generally income generating opportunities. This issue presents itself in the EU as well: people of lower socioeconomic status and marginalized groups, such as single mothers, the elderly, and ethnic minorities, continue to be particularly vulnerable to food and nutrition insecurity. In addition, culture affects food and nutrition security in many ways, including through food access and food choice. These drivers are still insufficiently embedded in strategies and analyses of FNS. This session highlights Foodsecure findings on the FNS impacts of such drivers, including original research for the case of the Roma in Romania, and discusses the implications for FNS policy.
