Abstract

In 2011, the Governing Council of International Institute for the Unification of Private Law (Unidroit)1 approved a long-term project in collaboration with other international organizations to undertake a series of projects on agricultural development and food security.2 These projects are designed to use Unidroit’s expertise in private international commercial law with the expertise that the other organizations have with agricultural development and food security. The first project, jointly undertaken with the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization and the International Fund for Agricultural Development, resulted in 2015 in the Legal Guide on Contract Farming.3 Unidroit’s second project in food security and agricultural development is a Legal Guide on Land Investment Contracts.4 In this article, I will examine the past, current, and future work of Unidroit in food security and agricultural development and how this work may serve as a model for the merging of private international law with broader concerns of economic and social development.
