Abstract

This article discusses the multidimensionality of poverty, how it is shaped and maintained through colonial logics, and how this understanding requires a holistic process of reparations. Reparations is a key part of decolonizing development. Anti-racism with integral intentions can be an expression of reparation as we actively dismantle hierarchies entrenched by racism (such as coloniality, apartheid, and caste systems). Drawing from a research project on race, ethnicity, and poverty conducted by Christian Aid, the authors reflect on what faith-based international non-governmental organisations (INGOs) must do in order to make these recognitions and move toward repair through working towards eradicating poverty.
