(p.383) 18 Justice and absolute poverty
Absolute Poverty in Europe

Gottfried Schweiger

Policy Press

The first part of this chapter distinguishes between three dimensions of justice, which can be used to measure the injustice of absolute poverty: recognition, distribution of resources and access to rights. In the second part the author argues that absolute poverty undermines all three dimensions of justice and does so to a larger degree than other forms of poverty. The author discusses the dependency on food banks as an example of absolute poverty.
