According to the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF), in the poorer parts of the globe, every 3.6 seconds a person dies of starvation — and usually it is a child under the age of five. This lecture looks at three of the ways suggested in our era to address the challenges of feeding children in the impoverished parts of the world: remittances by parents who work abroad, child labor, and intercountry adoption. All of these very different solutions take part within the framework of bordered globalization and cannot be fully understood or thoughtfully debated without it.
Professor Daphna Hacker from the Faculty of Law and the Gender Studies Program at Tel Aviv University will discuss parts of her latest book “Legalized Families in the Era of Bordered Globalization” (Cambridge University Press, 2017). Providing a panoramic and interdisciplinary perspective, this book explores the interrelations between globalization, borders, families and the law.
