Poverty, Inc.: Film showing and discussion

Poverty, Inc – fighting poverty is big business – but who profits the most?

Film Showing and discussion of Poverty, Inc

The West has positioned itself as the protagonist of development, giving rise to a vast multi-billion dollar poverty industry — the business of doing good has never been better. Yet the results have been mixed, in some cases even catastrophic, and leaders in the developing world are growing increasingly vocal in calling for change. Drawing from over 200 interviews filmed in 20 countries, Poverty, Inc. unearths an uncomfortable side of charity we can no longer ignore.

Wednesday 27 April, 5.30pm, Leeds University Business School Maurice Keyworth LT (G.02)
Film showing and post-film discussion organised by Leeds University Centre for African Studies (LUCAS) with The Global Native (Leeds-based NGO) – all welcome – admission £5 (costs help contribute towards The Global Native’s development work in Zimbabwe).
