O Direito Internacional da Pobreza

O Direito Internacional da Pobreza

TRANSLATION into Portuguese of "International Poverty Law", first published by Zed Books in the CROP International Studies in Poverty Research

The book seeks to advance the emerging field of international poverty law. While law and development discourse has dealt with international poverty, advocates of poverty reduction customarily operate within a nation-state context. While critiquing both legal theory and current policy, the contributors to the book nevertheless open up a constructive prospect of specific arenas in which the development of international poverty law can contribute to addressing poverty reduction.

The book contains a new foreword by Alfredo Bruto da Costa, a long time CROP collaborator, who is now president of the Portuguese Economic and Social Council.
