CRITICAL GLOBAL POVERTY STUDIES GROUP

We view poverty as produced through political, economic, and cultural mechanisms, that are connected and recurrent across space and also (co)produced through human actions and places. We argue for the simultaneity of the operation of materials processes and social constructions of poverty. We have a central concern with social and global justice and we view the poor as creative agents with capacity to define their actions and futures. Our work has clear ethical dimensions that are concerned with global and social justice. 

We are committed to engaging multiple audiences including policy actors, academics, social movements, non-governmental organizations, and the public broadly. We explicitly separate policy and action, arguing that there are multiple forms of action and social change, emanating from multiple sites and politics.
