Breaking the Poverty Cycle

The Human Basis for Sustainable Development

First Edition

Susan Pick and Jenna Sirkin

  • Development and poverty reduction programs have been an integral component of the international development scene for the past few decades. Such discussions often focus on economic development, and the potential contextual or structural factors that could enhance national or community development.
  • Proposes a tested development framework and a step by step implementation strategy. The process is encapsulated in the Framework for Enabling Empowerment (FrEE) and the strategy, "Programming for Choice," as a means of making the widely-cited Capability Approach (initially proposed by Nobel Prize Laureate Amartya Sen) operational from a human perspective. It provides a unique strategy and psychosocial framework from which Sen's approach can be operationalized. This book provides a unique mix of practical strategies that are also grounded in the academic literature.
