Can Globalisation Make Poverty History?

The issue of poverty has gained the centre stage in the globalisation debate during the last few years. Perhaps as an effect of, or in any case in conjunction with, the pressure of civil society, policy-makers have increasingly engaged in trying to give a solution to the outstanding problems of global poverty and inequality. This workshop took stock of studies, events, and actions that have taken place so far, and suggested ways to look at this issue in the future. It brought together members of the academic community and of civil society to confront their views on the relationship between globalisation, regionalisation, and poverty.
