Webb Memorial Trust - Launch of Rethinking Poverty - London
@Shaw Library, London School of Economics Old Building LSE Houghton Street, WC2A 2AE

Social policy has failed to find answers to these problems. Rethinking Poverty argues that we need to start with the society we want, rather than framing poverty as a problem to be solved. Based on an extensive research programme, a key theme is to increase people’s sense of agency in building the society that they want.
