Eradicating Extreme Poverty: Democracy, Globalization, and Human Rights

Eradicating Extreme Poverty: Democracy, Globalization, and Human Rights

BOOK edited by Xavier Godinot

PlutoPress, January 2012

After decades of troubled development policies, this book outlines a new approach which the contributors hope will help policy-makers, researchers, students and academics.

Editor Xavier Godinot and his colleagues build on experiences, capabilities and strategies of the poor themselves. They argue that the first step is a close connection with poor communities followed by a commitment to take action alongside them.

Life-stories from Burkina Faso, France, Peru and the Philippines are used to show that the poor should be involved in their own liberation.
