About the Webinar:
Globalization has engendered increased complexity in modern society. This complexity permeates almost every aspect of our life. In the context of food systems, globalized food supply chains have created greater challenges for assuring food safety, with myriad actors, who are economically, socially, and culturally diverse, involved in the production and distribution processes. To manage such complexity, food safety standards - equivalence safety standards in particular - have been established in order to assure the public interest. This webinar examines the Equivalence Determinant Program in the US broiler industry and explores its role in facilitating trade and assuring safety in the globalized US broiler trade.
About the Speaker:
Lu Hao is currently an Institutional Research Analyst at Georgetown University. She graduated from Georgetown in May 2014, with a Master's Degree in Communication, Culture and Technology (CCT), where her concentration was globalization and standards, social development, and institutional studies. Her thesis, The Paradox of Standard Setting in Globalized Agri-food Production Systems, examined safety standards setting in the US broiler industry between the 1980s and 2010s.
In the fall of 2013 Lu took a standards course taught by Georgetown Professor D. Linda Garcia, where her budding interest in standards and standard setting grew. Ms. Hao also participated in the ANSI Setting Standards Simulation Workshop in November 2013 held in New York City, which helped her better understand the dynamics and challenges in real life standard setting practices. She hopes to combine the knowledge and skills learned from her education in order to continue to develop new ideas, strategies and solutions for standard setting in the era of intensified globalization.
