Reasonable standard of living - poverty reduction for real

Some women wash clothes in a river and a child bathes.

We should talk about achieving a fair standard of living for all rather than fighting poverty, the debaters write.

Of: Gunilla Palm and Gunnel Axelsson Nycander

Should the goal of international development work continue to be to reduce poverty? Perhaps it is time to see instead a fair standard of living for all as the goal of development work that is firmly rooted in human rights. That is the opinion of Gunnel Axelsson Nycander and Gunilla Palm at the Church of Sweden.
