IREL 430. Global Poverty: Politics and Practices. 1 Credit.
Offered Either Fall or Spring; Lecture hours:3
This course engages debates about the politics and practice of addressing poverty in a global context. We examine how schemes are conceptualized, come to be taken up, and circulate globally -- from micro-finance, to food supplements, and cash-transfers for the poor. Alongside this, we examine the business of “ending poverty.”.
