Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2017-2018.

The course focuses on planning for poverty alleviation in the Global South. The course addresses the following questions: How is poverty defined and understood? What methods are available for measurement and evaluation? What are appropriate strategies, policies and programs to alleviate poverty? What are alternative approaches? To address these questions, the course critically examines three schools of thought that have dominated how we conceptualize, measure and alleviate poverty: poverty as economic deprivation, poverty in terms of well-being and basic human needs, and poverty as vulnerability and social exclusion. 

When Offered Fall or spring.
