About this product
- DescriptionAn in-depth analysis of the global poverty 'problem' and how it is framed and understood. The volume questions existing theories of the causes of global poverty and argues that global poverty is gradually becoming a question of national distribution.

He was UK representative and Vice President of the European Association of Development Research and Training Institutes from 2008 to 2014, and a council member of the Development Studies Association from 2000 to 2014.
