The unheard truth : poverty and human rights by Irene Khan( Book )

8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 944 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Despite economic growth in almost every corner of the world over the last decade, billions of people still live in poverty. Amnesty International Secretary General Irene Khan claims that economic analyses do not provide a full picture and economic solutions alone cannot end the problems of poverty. In an argument enriched with her personal experiences and case studies from around the world, Khan sees poverty as the world's worst human rights crisis because it traps people in a vicious cycle of deprivation, insecurity, exclusion, and voicelessness. She argues that the foremost challenge is the empowerment of poor people, and makes a passionate and urgent plea for action to uphold human rights in the fight to end poverty."--Jacket

Die unerhörte Wahrheit : Armut und Menschenrechte by Irene Khan( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rockstars, Politiker, NGOs, Entwicklungshilfeorganisationen: Alle wollen die Armut bekämpfen, und trotzdem leben heutzutage immer noch eine Milliarde Menschen von weniger als einem Dollar am Tag! Damit Armut keine immerwährende globale Epidemie bleibt, fordert die Generalsekretärin von Amnesty International, Irene Khan, eine radikale, neue Sicht der Dinge. Anhand gezielt ausgesuchter Fallbeispiele, belegt mit Analysen und unterfüttert mit persönlichen Erfahrungen, plädiert sie leidenschaftlich dafür, Armut endlich nicht mehr als rein ökonomisches Problem zu sehen, dem man nur mittels Spenden, neuen Technologien oder Investitionen begegnen kann, sondern als eine eindeutige Verletzung der Menschenrechte. Nur wenn wir den Armen die einfachsten Grundrechte zugestehen, ihnen die Möglichkeit geben, selbst über ihr Leben zu bestimmen, dann werden wir auch die Armut besiegen und allen Menschen Freiheit und Würde geben können
