Conclusion: What Has the Future Got for This Global Model?

  • Michelle Morais de Sá e Silva


Chapter 8 raises questions about CCTs ’ future. As the political thermometer changes from progressive to conservative in various countries, one cannot but wonder what will happen to the international poverty reduction agenda, which brings us back to the discussions presented in the beginning of the book. As conservative governments come to power—whether legitimately or illegitimately—and as national budgets become tighter, it is not too clear if the poverty-reduction agenda, which made room for the creation and diffusion of CCTs, will remain as a top international developmental priority.
