Obesity Governance

Last modified: 11.10.2015

The main objective of this project is to study innovative approaches, such as industry involvement and public-private partnership initiatives, to counteract obesity and overweight in Europe. Our main focus will be on reformulation of manufactured food, in a relatively broad definition of the concept, including retailers.

Analytically, we will investigate the relationship between two major dimensions: regulatory politics on the one hand and healthy eating policies on the other. Regulatory politics refer to the different configurations of public – private involvement.
