The course materials are organized into three themes: understanding poverty, fighting poverty, and striving for a sustainable society. The aim of understanding poverty is to make students gain familiarity with poverty issues from the economic, political, and social perspectives. Fighting poverty introduces a wide range of anti-poverty strategies to help students developing their thinking on ending poverty.
