Thinking 'Small' and the Understanding of Poverty: Maymana and Mofizul's Story
AbstractMuch recent thinking on poverty and poverty reduction is â€˜bigâ€™ in terms of its ideas, units of analysis, datasets, plans and ambitions. While recognising some of the benefits of such approaches this paper argues that researchers should counterbalance this through â€˜thinking smallâ€™. It illustrates this through the life history of a poor two person household in Bangladesh. Maymana and Mofizulâ€™s story confirms much current thinking about persistent poverty in that country. [WP No. 22].
