The Transformation of Asian Food Consumption and Russia as a Guarantor of Food Security in Asia

Asian Journal of Peacebuilding. 2018. Vol. 6. No. 2. P. 319-334.

This paper examines the state of the global food problem, food security in East Asia and the opportunity for Russia to prevent a food deficit in North Korea. The authors analyze the symptoms of the global food problem, the theoretical approaches to food security, the transformation of food consumption in Asia and the food trade between Russia and the Korean Peninsula. One major conclusion is that Russia is in the best position among all the c­ountries of the world to increase food exports to Asia – and especially to North Korea – while the Asian population’s habits of food consumption shape the new structure of food trade between that region and the rest of the world.
