ABSTRACT

UNRISD’s recent publication, Combating Poverty and Inequality, attempts to explain how poverty reduction depends crucially on the interconnections among economic development, social policy and politics. It emphasizes that poverty and inequality cannot be addressed by narrow approaches to social protection or by economic growth alone. Instead, there is a need for new directions in macroeconomic policy and structural change to generate decent employment.

Also available in French and Spanish.
