Thinking through chronic poverty and destitution: theorising social relations and social ordering [Draft].

This paper takes an anthropological look at the concept of chronic poverty. It asks what the concept does, both within and outside of specialised poverty and development discourses, investigates its genealogy and considers what kinds of social phenomena it captures.
