Poverty as a Human Rights Violation

This paper, Poverty as a Human Rights Violation by Vincent Greason, explores how six provincial anti-poverty strategies are remarkably similar in spite of the fact that they address differing socio-economic realities, have been developed by governments representing different political parties and (supposedly) differing political ideologies. He finds that none of the strategies address poverty as a human rights violation even though many human rights are directly related to poverty.
