Technology has transformed the global food system, but its unable end global hunger. Political will power is needed to solve this problem rather than technology. Genetically modified crops are used as a springboard for examining the role ascribed to technology by the international institutional framework for responding to food insecurity. It is argued that food insecurity is a problem rooted in political will formation rather than in the mechanics of food production. From this starting point, researchers examine the failure of various global initiatives to end hunger, highlighting how these initiatives emphasized new technologies for increasing food production while ignoring the thorny structural problems associated with global hunger.
