"Theories of Poverty" and "Approaches to International Development"

When academics, practitioners, and activists engage in development, be it in the U.S. or internationally, what perspectives might they have that shapes how they might approach their responses to social justice and equity?  What theories of poverty may they have as their intellectual and socio-political foundation.  And can we discern if these perspectives have influenced the major trends in development, particularly in the international arena, that guide donors and states in providing assistance?

    What a great topic, and so relevant for me to my new position as Senior Officer, Programs & Partnerships for CUSO International in the US. Unfortunately, have a previous engagement I must participate in. Enjoy the conversation.
