How the 'Poor' Become 'Poor' - Debating Global Civil Society and Constructions of Poverty


Download: Audio, Video

Speaker(s): Professor David Campbell, Teresa Hanley; Dr Ruth Kattumuri; Dr Sally Stares
Chair: Professor Mary Kaldor

Recorded on 6 May 2009 in Old Theatre, Old Building.

This diverse panel explores global civil society approaches to the social problem of poverty. The ways in which poverty are articulated, how poverty is represented, and how 'the poor' are designated are important political processes with implications for people's agency, our perceptions of impoverishment, and policies to alleviate it.
