Developing a Viable Strategy of Solving the Problems of Poverty in the Light of Human Rights

Full Product Description

Poverty is a multi-dimensional concept which is complex in its origin as well as in its manifestations. Oppression and denial of Human Rights can contribute to poverty. However, this oppression and exploitation of the poor is not to be understood simplistically but as a systemic injustice rooted within the context of well organized socio-political and cultural structures of oppression. This study is a concerted effort to identify, articulate and highlight the existence, the causes and effects of poverty in Nigeria, particularly in Igboland, where Human Rights infringements have contributed to poverty. It also aims at alerting the respective governments to their administrative inadequacies that are contrary to social ethics and have given rise to poverty. It concludes by discussing viable strategies of alleviating poverty in Igboland. Fidelis presents in his work a very remarkable analysis of poverty and Human Rights. It is the integration of Amartya Sen's and Martha Nussbaum's Capabilities approach with the principle of solidarity as practiced in Igboland.
Fidelis has made an important contribution to knowledge here which is invaluable to students of various fields of inquiry as well as more advanced scholars and professionals engaged in the fight against the abuses of Human Rights and mitigation of poverty.
