In 2015, the world will celebrate the achievement of the first Millennium Development Goal (MDG-1): to halve world poverty by 2015. But this foreseeable achievement crucially depends on how poverty is being measured and tracked. Professor Pogge will look at definitions of poverty and interpretations of what it means to halve poverty by 2015.
Professor Thomas Pogge - Philosophy and International Affairs, Yale University.
