Poverty and poverty reduction are prominent topics of discussion at international development meetings. Despite the existence of both private and public initiatives to combat it, over 1 billion people still live in extreme poverty, about half of whom are in sub-Saharan African countries (MDG, 2015). Poverty Global Practice, a poverty policy monitoring and evaluation unit of the World Bank, indicates that, for countries in Africa, poverty continues to rise because anti-poverty policies fail to reduce poverty (PGP, 2016), a view shared by the literature on poverty reduction in Africa (Dagusta, 2007; McCloskey, 2015). It has been suggested that more comprehensive and coordinated methods could help anti-poverty programmes overcome some of the major challenges to alleviating global poverty (Ravallion, 2016). In line with this suggestion, the proposed research examines the potential of sustainable anti-poverty strategies through the triangulation of three research domains: multidimensional poverty, family functioning, and social justice theories.

When we think of leadership, our thoughts may go to examples such as the heads of large organizations or to community figures that have historically impacted our society. We might point to others saying they are our leader through an accepted way of thinking or to simply avoid responsibility. But do we consider our self to be a leader regardless of our role, age or status? This series will explore the opportunity we all have to be the leader and what it takes to become and to live from the understanding that we are all the CEO of our life.
