The proceedings of the Development Studies Association conference held in Dublin on the 150th anniversary of the Great Irish Famine examine the historical background and the reasons why the spectre of famine continues to haunt much of the developing world today. Set in the context of the concepts of food security and insecurity it emphasises our moral responsibility to act collectively and to tackle less dramatic problems of food insecurity.
