Welcome to the course, Poverty in a Globalizing World. The course exposes us to the poverty situation in the world especially in what has come to be  called 'developing countries'. The purpose of the course is to help learners analyse the causes of poverty among developing nations, the various theories and thoughts that explain their poverty. It helps the learner to analyse the relationship between globalization and poverty.

We shall have our interaction and presentation online and pose questions that help us to grasp the factors/theories underlying poverty in developing nations.
