Andrew Fischer wins the 2015 CROP International Studies in Poverty Prize

Andrew Fischer

The prize was awarded by the Comparative Research Programme on Poverty (CROP) for Fischer’s book proposal entry, Poverty as Ideology: Rescuing Social Justice from Global Development Agendas and the Poverty Industry.

The selection committee praised the submission as ‘laying out a rigorous analysis of how the official measurement of poverty is ideologically loaded in ways that seriously impair our understanding of how poverty is reproduced and how it should be fought.'

The book will be published by Zed Books in the CROP-Zed Book Series CROP International Studies in Poverty Research.
