Sean Aas, Australasian Journal of Philosophy I strongly recommend this collection to anyone interested in present philosophical debates on global poverty and human rights.

Julian Culip, Ethics The volume Poverty, Agency, and Human Rights is an important contribution to the fields of global ethics and justice. ... The volume is, thus, deeply concerned about practical issues in nonideal theory. We believe that this represents a significant improvement over several of the earlier contributions to global ethics and justice.

Human rights practitioners have been stressing the importance of community participation and stakeholder engagement for some time, so it is helpful to see... what a philosophical argument for incorporating these considerations would look like.
