Commentary on food and agriculture politics from the perspective of
long term professional interest in European and international policy(see website:, nurtured over three decades of analysing the development of the CAP and international policies. My book ‘European Agriculture: Policies, Production and Trade’ is a distillation of this experience. Current major interest: the challenge to the world’s agriculture industries of feeding 9 billion by the mid-century. Counterfactual to the current doom-laden view is my latest book – ‘Global Food Futures – Feeding the world in 2050’, to be published by Bloomsbury in early 2013. I continue to observe European policy as it copes with the challenges of recession,budgetary stringency, trade liberalisation, climate change and other environmental problems.
