Contested Landscapes of Poverty and Homelessness In Southern Europe: Reflections from Athens

Contested Landscapes of Poverty and Homelessness In Southern Europe: Reflections from Athens By Prof. Vassilis P. Arapoglou, Prof. Kostas Gounis
English | PDF |2017 | 158 Pages | ISBN : 3319624512 | 2.39 MB

The book uses Athens as a case study to identify the key features of urban anti-poverty policies in Greece and to discuss them in relation to policy developments in the crisis-ridden countries of Southern Europe. The idea of contested landscapes shapes the focus of the book on urban poverty and homelessness. Contested landscapes refer to the complex dynamics between visible and invisible poverty and to competing strategies on how to address them.

This edited collection provides a comprehensive examination of multidimensional poverty for a wide variety of economies and societies, with a general focus on multidimensional poverty in developed countries, where poverty is often overlooked.

Poverty, Inequality, and Evaluation: Changing Perspectives

Poverty, Inequality, and Evaluation: Changing Perspectives by Ray C. Rist
English | Oct. 15, 2015 | ASIN: B017NWP71Y | 313 Pages | PDF | 7 MB

The basic premise of this book is that the conversation on the future of development needs to shift from a focus on poverty to that of inequality. The poverty emphasis is in an intellectual and political cul de sac. It does not address the fundamental question of why people are poor nor what can be done structurally and institutionally to reduce and eliminate it.

When viewed through an economic lens, poverty can be defined as an absence of resources. Since 1995, Framework's basic premise is that the middle-class understandings of those who work with children and adults in poverty are often ill-suited for connecting with and helping people build up resources and rise out of poverty.
