Impact of Globalization on the World’s Poor

Project name/title
Impact of Globalization on the World's Poor
Year:
2004
Theme:
Globalization and Trade
Abstract:
Globalization offers new opportunities for accelerating development and poverty reduction. And there is much concern about the distribution of benefits; in particular whether the poor gain from globalization, and under what circumstances it may actually hurt them. This project aims at producing rigorous theoretical and empirical analysis of the poverty impact of globalization, thereby providing a framework upon which to build strategies for 'pro-poor globalization'. The project is interested in understanding better the mechanisms through which globalization ultimately affects poverty.
