Collected here are fifteen cutting-edge essays by leading academics about the severe poverty that today afflicts billions of human lives. The essays seek to explain why freedom from poverty is a human right and what duties this right creates for the affluent. Addressing even the most complex aspects of human rights in clear language, these discussions are accessible to specialists and lay readers alike.

The authors agree that there is a human right to be free from poverty. They further agree that this right is violated by the present world economy that creates severe imbalances in income and wealth among and within countries. Their searing indictment of the status quo is all the more powerful since the authors exemplify diverse philosophical methods and moral traditions, and study different aspects of poverty and its global institutional causes.

This volume derives from a UNESCO philosophy programme organized in response to the first of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 2000: 'to eradicate extreme poverty and hunger'.
Not only a crucial aid and challenge to policy-makers who think of their work in human rights terms, it should also be of great interest to academics and students in philosophy, political science, law and international relations. Indeed, in view of the magnitude of human rights deficit here under discussion, every citizen of conscience has reason to engage with the arguments in this book.
