Despite the positive developments in recent years, food security is a common problem of all humanity. In order to eliminate this problem, different initiatives are conducted within the fields of political and international relations. Moreover, to be able to analyze the dynamics of this problem and determine the policies to be implemented, prospective research and academic studies are carried. This study aims to elucidate the corrupt policies negatively influencing food security in a macroeconomic framework by examining the variables including unemployment, dependent population, and per capita income. To be able to realize that, panel data of 75 countries obtained between the years 2012-2016 have been analysed using Driscoll and Kraay Method. According to the obtained results, corruption, although minor, has an impact on food security. Thus, in order to realize food security the following actions need to be taken: minimizing bureaucracy; increasing interaction with the public power for the sake of activities that would support good governance of the society and non-governmental organizations; minimizing the human factor by using technological innovations more effectively in public services and; putting the deterrent laws that would eliminate favouritism into effect. © 2021 by the authors.
