Here is another of the videos done by Oxford University faculty Elaine Chase & Robert Walker

They write: "The link between poverty and shame has important implications for how we think about, design, and build policies intended to alleviate poverty. Our research, carried out with colleagues in the United Kingdom, China, India, Norway, Pakistan, South Korea, and Uganda, found that shame is an important part of the experience of poverty in all these countries.

People in poverty in all seven countries described feeling ashamed at being unable to live up to their own or others’ expectations due to a lack of income and other resources. But more importantly, they reported routinely being stigmatized, labeled, shunned and ignored in many different spheres of their lives.

Using this research, we have produced a series of short films to start an alternative conversation about poverty. These films, produced in collaboration with the UK Media Trust, present these different world views back to the public, to the media, and to politicians.

In this, the second of the films, we meet two families living very different lives in Pakistan."

As Biden Stalls, Is the "Restorationist" Narrative Losing Ground?

U.S. Global Engagement Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev notes that former Vice President Joe Biden is, in foreign policy terms, most associated with a "restorationist" approach. How does this differentiate from other candidates? What approach will resonate most with voters?

Democratic Candidates & Foreign Policy after Iowa, with Nikolas Gvosdev

With the (incomplete) results of the Iowa Caucus putting the spotlight on Pete Buttigieg and Bernie Sanders, what do we know about their foreign policy platforms? How do they differentiate themselves from Joe Biden?
