Abstract [en]

This paper examines the securitization of food/nutrient. It explains how the untraditional security issue of food insecurity is being constructed as a threat, by asking questions as how, why and to what extent this occurrs. The paper uses the theoretical framework of securitization from the Copenhagen School to fully analyze posed questions. To illustrate the process of securitization, how it can be visible in one region and non-existing in another where food insecurity is evident, a partly comparative case study including North Korea and Madagascar have been implemented.
