    Περίληψη

    Αυτή η έκθεση εξετάζει τις επιπτώσεις της λιτότητας στην Ελλάδα στο δικαίωμα στην τροφή. Καταλήγει στο συμπέρασμα ότι το ελληνικό κράτος και τα κράτη μέλη της Ευρωζώνης παραβίασαν το δικαίωμα του ελληνικού λαού στην τροφή ως αποτέλεσμα των μέτρων λιτότητας που απαιτήθηκαν από τα τρία Μνημόνια Κατανόησης (2010, 2012 και 2015). Με άλλα λόγια, τα πακέτα λιτότητας που επιβλήθηκαν στην Ελλάδα αντέβαιναν στο διεθνές δίκαιο των ανθρωπίνων δικαιωμάτων.

Nemlig et madsystem, der anerkender menneskers værdi, har respekt for planeten og leverer og sikrer anstændigt og værdigt arbejde. Hvordan skete det, og hvad kan vi gøre ved det?
