This important Research Handbook explores the nexus between human rights, poverty and inequality as a critical lens for understanding and addressing key challenges of the coming decades, including the objectives set out in the Sustainable Development Goals. The Handbook starts from the premise that it is too simplistic to understand poverty solely as an issue of minimum income, and explores the profound ways that deprivation and inequalities of capabilities and power relate to economic, civil, social, cultural and political rights.

This important Research Handbook explores the nexus between human rights, poverty and inequality as a critical lens for understanding and addressing key challenges of the coming decades, including the objectives set out in the Sustainable Development Goals. The Handbook starts from the premise that poverty is not solely an issue of minimum income and explores the profound ways that deprivation and inequalities of capabilities and power relate to economic, civil, social, cultural and political rights.

Leading experts in the human rights field representing a range of disciplines outline a future research agenda that addresses poverty and inequality head on. Beginning with an interrogation of the definition of poverty, subsequent chapters analyse the dynamics of poverty and inequality in relation to matters such as race, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, geography, and migration status. The rights to housing, land, health, work, education, protest and access to justice are also explored, with a recognition of the challenges posed by corruption, climate change, and new technologies.

The Research Handbook on Human Rights and Poverty is an essential reference guide for scholars and students of human rights subjects, who are teaching this material and developing future research agendas of their own. This will also be a much-needed resource for people working practically to address poverty in both the Global North and Global South.
