Abstract

Poverty as a subject matter has been attracting increasing attention in the academic literature in recent years, and researchers from a variety of disciplines such as sociology, psychology, business, management, as well as practitioners ranging from world bodies, national and local governments have all joined seasoned economists in the attempt to better understand poverty as well as generating means to alleviate it. Furthermore, many quantitative and qualitative studies have also been conducted on poverty in various studies. Linking the lively debates shaping the literature on poverty to strategy research and outlining a research agenda for strategy scholars who might develop an interest in this area constitute the main focus of this study. This paper is intended to evoke provoking thoughts and possibly productive actions among management scholars as well as practitioners and policy makers. Poverty is therefore viewed in this context as an issue of both national and international concern and requires the right policies at all levels for alleviation. Recommendations applicable to both academics and policy makers at all levels were also documented for the possibility of application in order to stem the ever rising tide of the menace
