“Hunger 1993: Uprooted People”

(1992) Bread for the World Institute on Hunger and Development, Washington, D.C. 204 pages.


This is the third annual report on the state of world hunger compiled and published by the Bread for the World Institute on Hunger and Development - an organization involved in research and education about hunger working closely with Bread for the World, described in this book as “a Christian citizens movement of 45,000 members who advocate specific policy changes to help over come hunger in the United States and overseas”.

It consists of a series of essays focussing on the problems of those who face hunger as a result of being forced against their will to leave their home communities, and addressing what has and can be done to alleviate the suffering. The subject matter “uprooted people” covers not only refugees in the traditional sense - defined in the report as “people who have crossed international boundaries to escape persecution based on race, religion, national origin, political opinion, or membership in a social group, or to escape war, civil strife, or political chaos”, but also internally displaced people, uprooted indigenous peoples, and the growing number of environmental refugees, those “forced to abandon their homes or homelands as a result of human-induced environmental conditions that threaten their livelihoods.” The report also contains chapters on “Hunger Among Uprooted People in the United States”, “Reforming the International Refugee Aid and Protection System” and “Regional Hunger Updates”, covering Africa, Asia and the Pacific, Latin America and the Caribbean, Middle East, North America, and the Former Soviet Union and Central and Eastern Europe. Additional features are updated and expanded tables of country-level indicators, state-level indicators of poverty in the United States, a glossary and an extensive bibliography.
