Polyscopic Landscape of Poverty Research

Polyscopic Landscape of Poverty Research

The Polyscopic Landscape of Poverty Research was a research project responding to a call by the Research Council of Norway.

The call was launched in August 2004 and sought a "state-of-the-art" report in international poverty research, with a special focus on institutions and rights. CROP was successful with its tender and, in close co-operation with scholars in the South and other members of the CROP international network of poverty researchers, prepared a 182-page report that was completed in April 2005:



"State of the art" in International Poverty Research

An overview and 6 in-depth studies
