ctrp382 How the World Thinks of Poverty

Poor CarThe way people talk and think about poverty has a major influence in how it is addressed in society. The problem is that there is a limited amount of research regarding perceptions of poverty in different parts of the world and throughout history. Armando Barrientos, Professor and Research Director at the Brooks World Poverty Institute (Manchester),  has extensive experience with research and policy related to perception of poverty. He joins me on this podcast to talk about what trends can be identified and even a bit of possible good news when it comes to global poverty.

 

Flattr this!

    how “the world” thinks about poverty? really? i think that’s probably a bit misleading… can you really judge what the entire world thinks of poverty?

    @B have you listened to the podcast? You’ll understand more about the research’s goal to get responses from countries in every region of the world.

    I think we should expect the worst that is happening in Greece will be a devastating financial crisis to hit Europe and USA, may not get here in South America (or rather in BRAZIL)
