This section of the website explores different ways of understanding what it means to be poor in a holistic manner – taking into account social inequities and discriminatory practices. In particular, we seek to highlight relevant global debates and issues through short articles written by development practitioners, who reflect on the implications of such global trends for field practice and for Swiss development policy.
