Poverty and peace, and the relationship between them, are the central challenges for our times. Arguing that reducing poverty can also build opportunities for peace, Coralie Bryant and Christina Kappaz help form the policy debate on the role of poverty reduction in international society. Oftentimes poverty is looked at only in specific countries. Reducing Poverty, Building Peace looks at poverty from many sides of the spectrum: domestic and global, rich and poor countries. The second half of the book focuses on what has been learned about effectiveness, especially through participatory development, and more commitment to implementation in order to gain results. This book combines a discussion of theoretical concepts with attention to policies, programs, and projects and the ways they might be designed and implemented to reduce poverty. Targeted for a broad audience, including those who follow international development, US domestic poverty and welfare issues, and students with a special interest in international development programs, this book marks an essential addition to a vital set of issues for our time.
