A ajuda alimentar internacional dos EUA: política externa, interesses econômicos e assistência humanitária

Thiago Lima, Atos Dias

Resumo


Em 2014 o programa de ajuda alimentar dos EUA completa 60 anos. O presente artigo examina diversas dimensões da experiência sexagenária que evidenciam o caráter político, econômico e humanitário dos alimentos. O artigo se inicia com uma breve revisão histórica da política de ajuda alimentar estadunidense e posteriormente aborda o debate sobre aquela política no século XXI, destacando o esforço reformista dos presidentes Bush e Obama. Por fim, examinam-se os limites das demandas presidenciais a partir da lógica do ‘triângulo de ferro’, que vincula empresários, ONG e legisladores.
