Academics Stand Against Poverty is proud to announce the publication of the organization\’s first book, titled The Social Exclusion Reader. The book, edited by ASAP Austria, features 24 short essays written by experts that offer new and unusual perspectives on poverty and social exclusion.
In the realm of global poverty the common discourse often centers on the same few concepts. These reoccurring narrowly-focused conversations and arguments enhance the risk of public numbness to poverty. Therefore, the primary aim of the The Social Exclusion Reader is to circulate deep poverty knowledge beyond the academic world to raise global awareness of the harsh, complex living conditions of the world’s poor. The book confronts and expands upon common knowledge of poverty by providing in-depth information and new, under-discussed viewpoints on poverty-related topics including poverty and noise, social exclusion and leisure, and poverty and disgust.
The Social Exclusion Reader is written in the German language and is currently available to read online.
ASAP Austria was founded in 2012 in Vienna. The primary focus of the chapter is on poverty alleviation at the regional and local level. For information related to the Social Exclusion Reader, write to Gottfried Schweiger at firstname.lastname@example.org.
