"This book explores areas of human experience that are highly complex, and which evoke powerful and contradictory feelings amongst those attempting to understand them. Although many view the institution of slavery as a purely historical phenomenon, slavery remains widespread today. It take many forms, often clandestine. One aspect of modern slavery that elicits particular revulsion is the trafficking of women and young girls and boys into the sex industry, and this is the focus of many of the authors in this book."--Jacket

"Fifty years ago, the United Nations Charter proclaimed universal rights to shared prosperity, peace, and security. How far has that vision of world citizenship been realised?"--BOOK JACKET. "Despite advances in human welfare and technology, there is today a growing polarisation between rich and poor. One in four of the world's people live in absolute poverty, unable to meet their basic needs; armed conflict is affecting millions of people; and the global environment is under threat. Yet there is a failure of political will to address the silent emergency of poverty."--BOOK JACKET. "The Oxfam Poverty Report draws on Oxfam's experience of working in over 70 countries, to examine the causes of poverty and conflict. It identifies the structural forces which deny people their basic rights, and gives a wide range of examples of the ways in which men and women are bringing about positive change at every level, from the household to the international arena."--BOOK JACKET. "Oxfam believes that it is time to renew the UN vision of universal basic rights. The Report concludes by proposing policy and institutional reforms which would transform international institutions and trading relations, and calls for a new commitment to work together to eradicate poverty and bring sustainable peace and security for all the world's people."--Jacket

Information management for development organisations by Mike Powell( Book )
5 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 213 libraries worldwide
"If information flows well between and within organisations, it empowers people by enabling them to make evidence-based choices; it promotes efficiency; and it enables creativity. Information does not flow well by chance: the process needs to be managed -- by everyone concerned. This book introduces tools to analyse the use of information in development and humanitarian agencies. It discusses both strategic and practical options for improvements, in the context of the broader information-related changes and debates taking place in the wider world." "This edition of Information Management for Development Organisations covers the major developments in these external debates since the first edition was published in 1998. The aim remains the same: to strengthen the effectiveness of development organisations and their interaction with the communities whom they exist to serve. Discussions of knowledge management, capacity building, institutional learning, evaluation and impact assessment, research, information products, and evidence-based work have been added to this edition, or considerably extended, together with a number of new case studies."--Back cover

Development methods and approaches critical reflections : selected essays from Development in practice ( Book )
5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 122 libraries worldwide
"Many aid agencies adopt values-based approaches to development -- requiring, for instance, that they should be rights-based, participatory, gender-equitable, and sustainable -- but these approaches are often at odds with the methods that the agencies actually adopt. This selection of essays offers critical readings of fashionable tools such as Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA) and Logical Frameworks, in addition to presenting less familiar methods. Two central themes emerge: that a project-based approach tends to distort rather than illuminate the wider picture; and that whatever the ideology under-pinning a given method, its impact will depend on the skills and understanding of those applying it."--Back cover
