The main purpose of this essay is to reflect some of the most essential problems with the right to food and also to include perspectives of important actors in this question. However, Sweden is one of many states that has not signed or ratified the Optional Protocol, they believe that it is not the best way to achieve the economic, social and cultural rights. While other actors are certain that the right to food can only be realized with the Optional Protocol including a individual and group international complaints mechanism to adjudicate the economic, social and cultural rights.

Although, they do not agree which approach is the most applicable and effective. (Less)
