The link between poverty and violent conflict

J. Brian Atwood

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

"Blessed are the [poor] for they shall inherit the earth." This biblical aphorism is being realized at an alarming pace. Almost half the world's six billion people live under the poverty line of two dollars a day: 1.2 billion people earn less than one dollar a day and are in the extreme poverty category. By 2020, the globe likely will add two billion more people, 95 percent of whom will reside in the developing world. Absent any dramatic shift in policy priorities, the poor may indeed inherit the earth in the lifetimes of most of us.
