Speaking of Poverty Differently

Speaking of Poverty Differently

Who’s responsible for poverty? Those who are in poverty or the societies they live in? This video ‘Speaking of Poverty, Differently’ seeks to answer this question.

In this video Olivier De Schutter, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, says that poverty is often attributed to individuals who made mistakes or weren’t able to take advantage of opportunities. In fact, De Schutter argues that poverty is a collective failure and that we must create societies and economies that are inclusive, where no one is left behind and everyone has a chance to give input and to help find solutions.
