Poverty and the Millennium Development Goals : A Critical Look Forward, Paperback / softback Book

Poverty and the Millennium Development Goals : A Critical Look Forward Paperback / softback

Edited by Alberto Cimadamore, Gabriele Koehler, Thomas Pogge

Part of the International Studies in Poverty Research series

Description

As the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) pass their 2015 deadline and the international community begins to discuss the future of UN development policy, Poverty and the Millennium Development Goals brings together leading economists from both the global North and South to provide a much needed critique of the prevailing development agenda.

By examining current development efforts, goals and policies, it exposes the structurally flawed and misleading measurements of poverty and hunger on which these efforts have been based, and which have led official sources to routinely underestimate the scale of world poverty even as the global distribution of wealth becomes ever more imbalanced.
