Encountering Poverty : Thinking and Acting in an Unequal World, Paperback / softback Book

Encountering Poverty : Thinking and Acting in an Unequal World Paperback / softback

Part of the Poverty, Interrupted series

Description

Encountering Poverty challenges mainstream frameworks of global poverty by going beyond the claims that poverty is a problem that can be solved through economic resources or technological interventions.

By focusing on the power and privilege that underpin persistent impoverishment and using tools of critical analysis and pedagogy, the authors explore the opportunities for and limits of poverty action in the current moment.

Encountering Poverty invites students, educators, activists, and development professionals to think about and act against inequality by foregrounding, rather than sidestepping, the long history of development and the ethical dilemmas of poverty action today.
