Missed the dance performance at LiveFriday? Want to see a new take on the age old problem of poverty? Read on...

Poverty measurement shares the stage with dance

On the 22 June, OPHI are proud to host Justice in Motion and the dance piece 'Bound'. First seen at LiveFriday Social Animals at the Ashmolean Museum, the piece combines physical theatre, comedy and dance to explore the experience of poverty.  

The event, at the Grove Auditorium at Magdalen College, will also celebrate the launch of OPHI's Global Multidimensional Poverty Index 2015 and OPHI's new book 'Multidimensional Poverty Measurement and Analysis (Oxford University Press).  This book provides a unique guide to viewing poverty through a multidimensional lens.

There's more to learn from a panel discussion with at least four of the book’s authors: Sabina Alkire, OPHI Director and Professor of Economics and International Affairs at George Washington University; Suman Seth, OPHI Senior Research Officer and Lecturer in Economics at Leeds University Business School; James Foster, OPHI Research Associate and Professor of Economics and International Affairs at George Washington University; and Paola Ballon, OPHI Research Associate and Senior Researcher for the Partnership of Economic Policy.
