The second issue of World Food Policy (WFP) Journal continues to bring together research-based papers by invited authors. Diverse in topic and geographical coverage, the papers offer insightful food policy analysis from the approach of the contributors’ area of expertise. Examining food policy agenda from regional and national perspectives, some of our contributors provide national policy assessments with significant regional and global implications while the others critically assess national policy instruments in terms of their accountability and effectiveness as well as the social costs they incur. Taken together, the papers provide policy implications for countries contemplating the decision to traverse down the populism path in their policy instrument choice for the food sector.
