The implications of globalisation for poverty and communities in the UK.

This Round-up summarises findings from research projects, programme papers and events run as part of the JRF 'Globalisation, UK poverty and communities' programme during 2010–11, as well as other relevant research.

It examines:

  • Challenges and opportunities of global connections for UK communities.
  • Implications for UK policy-makers aiming address poverty and inequality in a global policy arena.
