This paper aims to look at how poverty can be ended as well as getting the support and backing for policies and strategies that could make a world without poverty possible. With this project, the Webb Memorial Trust and Compass hope to make transformative changes happen in a society where politics and democracy no longer function as they used to. The author notes that strategies, tactics and policies need to be adjusted in order to operate in the context of an increasingly complex society. He concentrates on these issues to define the context in which poverty may be ended, arguing that it is possible that it may be one which already exists.
