Brooks World Poverty Institute

We are The Brooks World Poverty Institute, based at The University of Manchester. Our institute brings together one of the world’s largest collections of poverty researchers from across disciplines. We conduct research in the field, to inform solutions to end poverty.

We encourage people to think differently about poverty. Poverty isn’t only about how little money someone has. It’s also about an individual’s access to employment, how included they are in their community and how much they can be heard by the organisations mandated to help them. Poverty occurs in every country.
