Poverty and Social Exclusion in North and South: Essays on Social Policy and Global Poverty Reduction

Synopsis

In the last decade there has been a worrying increase in poverty in the industrialized countries of the "North" while the developing countries of the "South" have experienced some improvement. This collection argues that there are a number of likenesses between the predicaments of North and South and these warrant further analysis and investigation. Covering such themes as economic growth and social capital, food and poverty and debt versus equity in urban regeneration, this important will be of interest to students and academics involved with development economics as well as development studies.
