about this item

The Millennium Development Goals have recently passed their review deadline and the international community is consequently beginning to debate the future of the United Nations development policy. As a result, a new academic critique of the subject is essential. Poverty and the Millennium Development Goals fulfills this need, bringing together leading economists to provide a timely evaluation of the UN’s prevailing development agenda. Examining current development efforts, goals, and policies, these essays expose how structural flaws and misleading measurements of economic development and physical hunger over the last decade have led officials to routinely underestimate the scale of world poverty. Arguing that any future UN development agenda will be futile unless these fundamental flaws are addressed, this book outlines an alternative approach to development, in which policy is informed by new insights from the global south and by poverty analysis built on realistic, grassroots data. Poverty and the Millennium Development Goals will prove to be a vital handbook for students, researchers, and policy makers in creating more equitable agendas towards social, economic, political, and ecological justice.
