The Hidden Reason for Poverty

Rotary’s theme for  this month is peace and conflict resolutionWe published two blogs recently detailing the programmes  Rotary runs to promote peace: Giving Peace a Chance and Thinking globally and acting locally: Rotary and Peace the World over.

In this blog we are  highlighting the largely ignored but vital link between poverty and the lack of effective law enforcement in poor communities. As Gary Haugen explains in this thought provoking  TED talk
