In the great big universe of things to criticize, hope is an unlikely choice. What kind of jerk doesn't think hope is a good thing? Hope is positive! Hope is encouraging! Hope is a flicker of light in the vast sea of darkness, the very opposite of despair. Being anti-hope is like being anti-birthday cake or anti-kindness or anti-social change. But, can hope lead us down a dangerous path? A path that shackles us to the status quo while creating the illusion we are doing something—by way of hoping— to change it? How do we harness hope in a way that makes it a tool for creation, and not complacency? How do we think about hope as an ethical and political principle that shapes the way we come together to fight?

The #GlobalPOV Project is a program of the Global Poverty and Practice (GPP) Minor. Based at the Blum Center for Developing Economies, University of California, Berkeley, the GPP Minor creates new ways of thinking about poverty, inequality and undertaking poverty action.
