This course provides an overview of food governance, policy and regulation in the United States. The roles of public and private sectors at the local, state, national and international levels will be reviewed. Different policy instruments will be discussed including legislation (laws), government regulations, the courts and legal cases, international treaties and private sector agreements. The complexity of food policy will be explored using systems thinking and stakeholder analysis. Current issues will be analyzed to identify key stakeholders, map the policy system, and identify the core concerns. Students will learn to generate concise executive summaries and policy briefs to inform legislators and regulators.

This non-credit course meets with the academic course PubH 7200-115 as part of the 2019 Public Health Institute.
