HU Berlin, Unter den Linden 6, Senatssaal
In this KOSMOS lecture, Prof. Tilman Brück will outline how economic research can help overcome hunger for some of the most vulnerable women, men and children around the world. Based on his research in Africa, the Middle East and Asia, Prof. Brück will explain how multiple risks like violence, fragility, displacement and climate shocks can combine to hurt people’s lives, livelihoods and food security. He will also outline how interventions can help people overcome hunger.
Tilman Brück is Professor for Economic Development and Food Security at the Thaer-Institute of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and Head of the Research Group “Economic Development and Food Security” at the Leibniz Institute of Vegetable and Ornamental Crops (IGZ).
The lecture will be moderated by Prof. Martin Odening, HU Berlin.
