Charity – is it always a good thing?

Published: 10 March 2008 Origin:  Sociology, Social Policy and Criminology

Many years ago, John Stuart Mill argued that 'charity lavishes its bounty in one place, and leaves people to starve in another'.

Working through an ESRC-funded research centre on charitable giving and philanthropy, Professor John Mohan will direct a series of projects on the distribution of charitable organisations and charitable resources.

It will explore some of the implications of Mill's statement - for example, how does the distribution of registered charities relate to the patterns of prosperity and deprivation in different parts of the country?
