Vending as a Tool for Poverty Reduction

Vargas Falla, Ana Maria LU (2016) In Festskrift till Karsten Åström
Abstract
This chapter brings empirical data to the debate about the ability of law to contribute to the empowerment and development of informal workers, looking into the case of street vendors. Looking into the potential that law has for poverty reduction is an important goal and for that reason, this research aims to understand whether legal change, getting the legal permit to sell, can in fact bring empowerment for street vendors.
