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.

cities@manchester

The world is primarily an urban place and so scholars, policy makers, and public debate needs to address the urbanity of human experience. Cities are often projected as sources of disorder and social problems, yet cities have always been sources of cultural creativity, transnational connection, diversity, conviviality, and motors of intellectual, economic, environmental and political transformation.

Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute

We are committed to reducing our environmental impact, and are involved in the Green Impact Scheme at The University of Manchester.

 Three of the many ways we work towards reducing our carbon footprint:

  • use sustainable local food in our catering at events and meetings
  • reuse/recycle as much as possible
  • encourage sustainable travel
