Crynodeb

This article examines the way in which the development of information technology has enhanced the protection of the human right to adequate food—in a European context. The European Union's Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed enhances the level of protection offered to consumers in the context of an area of resource-intensive delivery of economic and social rights. The discussion explores the convergence of rights development—the European and global move towards a 'precautionary' entitlement to safe food—and the exploitation of technology as an effective means of disseminating crucial information as a way of guaranteeing such a right. In contrast to the sinister tone of much of the discourse relating to information technology and human rights protection, the conclusions of this study sound a more optimistic note for the objectives of the latter.
