Academics Stand Against Poverty (ASAP)

Academics Stand Against Poverty (ASAP)

ASAP is a new organization created by Thomas Pogge, Keith Horton, and Meena Krishnamurthy to help academics have a greater impact on world poverty.

Launched in 2008 by Thomas Pogge, Leitner Professor of Philosophy and International Affairs, the Global Justice Program unites an interdisciplinary group of scholars with the aim of taking morality seriously in shaping foreign policy and in negotiating transnational institutional arrangements. The program has a special interest in the evolution of severe poverty and its relationship with public health. The program is based at the Whitney and Betty MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies at Yale University.

ASAP lies between academia and activism. Like the latter, it aims primarily at persuading and motivating people to change their behavior. Like the former, it does so by moral and political argument, using the members distinctive skills as academics.
