CROP Newsletter July 2012
The newsletter is a way of sharing with CROPNet, colleagues and friends the events and news that involved CROP during the first semester of 2012.
During this time a great deal of attention has been paid to the interaction between religion and politics in framing the discourse, action and inaction towards poverty. It includes the contribution by Enrique Dussel and other relevant colleagues over the series of events organized in April by CROP and partners (NorLARNet, UiB Global, among others) as well as the formation of a CROP Working Group on the relation between poverty and religion. These events aim at systematically exploring the multiple interactions between both concepts which are relatively less mapped out in our area of study.
