Through the efforts of increasingly media-aware NGOs, people in the west are bombarded with images of poverty and inequality in the developing world. Representations of Poverty is the first comprehensive study of the communications and imagery used by international NGOs to represent the developing world.

'How exactly do international non-government organisations conceptualise the developing world when they legislate their mandate? This valuable book addresses precisely this question by insightfully and skilfully unearthing the subtext of NGO representations of global poverty, development and rights.' Neera Chandhoke, Professor of Political Science, University of Delhi 'This provocative analysis of the visual language of British international non-governmental development organisations raises a set of important and pressing questions, and deserves to be read by practitioner and researcher alike.' David Lewis, Professor of Social Policy and Development, London School of Economics
