Visualising Poverty Research

Visualising Poverty Research

Visualising Poverty Research was launched by CROP in September 2014 and seeks to disseminate poverty research to a wider audience using video interviews published on CROP's YouTube channel.

Scholars in CROP's network are invited to answer three standard questions related to poverty and the causes and actions to eradicate it. We ask them about:

  • the causes and consequences of the persistence of poverty
  • policies and actions needed to eradicate poverty
  • achievements of initiatives such as the MDGs/SDGs and the Social Protection Floor 

A series of interviews is already available and new ones are added regularly. These are 5-minute interviews with researchers from all over the world. The following video provides an overview of the project, while a list of individual interviews is available below.
