Sorry for the lack of substance today. It’s been a very long day, punctuated by discovering a locked church, learning about poverty statistics, partaking in discussion, brainstorming with students about the merits of various programmes, listening to guest lecturers and chatting with friends about the big move. I’m only just now getting some space in the day, but it’s past the critical “Need to get to bed” threshold.
So I’m going to leave you with a little bit of a link round-up:
- The Marginalized, a new blog that just seems absolutely fascinating regarding the realities of forced migration.
- Living Standards Measurement Study, or how the World Bank calculates poverty.
- Ravi Kanbur, an economist working to popularize development economics and advance inter-disciplinary cooperation.
- The Little Cars that Moved Europe, a wonderful telling of the micro-cars that dominated Europe after the Second World War
- Don’t be Afraid to Share, a look at how colleges are using social media
- HIV-positive teenagers and religion, an illuminating piece about how the discourse of Christian healing can be misappropriated.
- Raisins Give Hope to Afghan Farmers, an article exploring Fair Trade arrangements
Enjoy your reading!
