Global poverty : how global governance is failing the poor by David Hulme( Book )
29 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and held by 385 libraries worldwide
Around 1.4 billion people presently live in extreme poverty, and yet despite this vast scale, the issue of global poverty had a relatively low international profile until the end of the 20th century. In this important new work, the author charts the rise of global poverty as a priority global issue, and its subsequent marginalization as old themes edged it aside (trade policy and peace-making in regions of geo-political importance) and new issues were added (terrorism, global climate change and access to natural resources). Providing a concise and detailed overview of both the history and the current debates that surround this key issue, the book: outlines how the notion of global poverty eradication has evolved, evaluates the institutional landscape and its ability to attack global poverty, explores the roles of major institutions, and discusses the emerging issues that are re-shaping thinking, and the future prospects for global poverty eradication

Just give money to the poor : the development revolution from the global south by Joseph Hanlon( Book )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 352 libraries worldwide
Amidst all the complicated economic theories about the causes and solutions to poverty, one idea is so basic it seems radical: just give money to the poor. Despite its skeptics, researchers have found again and again that cash transfers given to significant portions of the population transform the lives of recipients. Countries from Mexico to South Africa to Indonesia are giving money directly to the poor and discovering that they use it wisely -- to send their children to school, to start a business and to feed their families. Directly challenging an aid industry that thrives on complexity and mystification, with highly paid consultants designing ever more complicated projects, Just Give Money to the Pooroffers the elegant southern alternative ' bypass governments and NGOs and let the poor decide how to use their money. Stressing that cash transfers are not charity or a safety net, the authors draw an outline of effective practices that work precisely because they are regular, guaranteed and fair. This book, the first to report on this quiet revolution in an accessible way, is essential reading for policymakers, students of international development and anyone yearning for an alternative to traditional poverty-alleviation methods. -- Back cover

Microfinance : a reader by David Hulme( Book )
19 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 137 libraries worldwide
Microfinance has become an important component of development, poverty reduction and economic regeneration strategy around the world. By the early twenty first century tens of millions of people in more than 100 countries were accessing services from formal and semi-formal microfinance institutions (MFIs). Much of the initial attention on microcredit came through work on Bangladesh's much-lauded Grameen Bank but, there are now many different 'models' for microfinance and many countries have substantial microfinance sectors. This timely book, written by one of the major players in the UK in development economics explores, amongst others, topics such as: microfinance and poverty reduction; microfinance, gender and social development; microinsurance; and, regulating and supervising microfinance institutions. Topical and insightful, this important text examines what has become a vast global industry employing hundreds of thousands of people and attracting the attention of large numbers of governments, banks, aid agencies, non-governmental organizations and consultancy firms

NGOs, states and donors : too close for comfort? ( Book )
4 editions published between 1990 and 2013 in English and held by 30 libraries worldwide
"This book provides the most detailed study available of the ways in which NGO-state-donor relationships have changed the role that NGOs play in development. The book is introduced by the two leading international experts on the topic, and the contributors are leading academics and senior practitioners. The picture that emerges from the general reviews and detailed case-studies of African, Asian and Latin American NGOs is a complex one. However, the authors conclude that there is much evidence that NGOs are 'losing their roots' - getting closer to donors and governments and more distant from the poor and disempowered whom they seek to assist."--Jacket
