The Poverty Conference Stockholm 17-18 October 2001
Agneta Larsson , Petter Bolme , Ylva Lindahl
Education - a road out of poverty? Vulnerability and powerlessness are words that often come up in the poor's description of their situation. To be poor is to be without the possibility to influence your life or immediate environment. Education however, can lead to empowerment and freedom in many different ways thereby helping to reduce poverty. What are the connections? And how can they affect good development co-operation? On World Poverty Day, Sida and the Collegium for Development Studies at Uppsala University invite you to take part in a discussion about the role of education in development.
