Poverty, Solidarity, and Poor-Led Social Movements

3 - 5 Werkdagen

This book rejects familiar ethical framings of problems of poverty and inequality, arguing that they have produced apolitical solutions that ignore the demands of poor organizations and movements. Deveaux argues that normative thinking about poverty should engage with the insights and goals of "pro-poor" activists in order to develop action-guiding norms that better align with their justice claims. Defending the idea of a political responsibility for solidarity, sheshows how nonpoor outsiders—individuals, institutions, and states—can help to advance a radical anti-poverty agenda by supporting the efforts of these movements.
