Attitudes to Chronic Poverty in the “Global Village”

GIGA Working Paper, No. 134, May 2010

Abstract
The paper explores attitudes to chronic poverty in a cross‐section of developed and developing countries based on data from the World Values Survey Wave Three (1994‐1998). The analysis finds a consistent belief among a majority of respondents that poverty is chronic. This paper also explores the factors that influence public attitudes to chronic poverty and finds that interests, position, knowledge, and shared values relating to social justice are important.
