Understanding and reducing persistent poverty in Africa: Introduction to a special issue

Christopher Barrett (), Michael Carter and Peter Little

Journal of Development Studies, 2006, vol. 42, issue 2, 167-177

Abstract: This paper introduces a special issue exploring persistent poverty in sub-Saharan Africa. As a set, these papers break new ground in exploring the dynamics of structural poverty, integrating qualitative and quantitative methods of analysis and adopting an asset-based approach to the study of changes in well-being, especially in response to a wide range of different (climatic, health, political, and other) shocks. In this introductory essay, we frame these studies, building directly on evolving conceptualisations of poverty in Africa.
