dc.description.abstract I, Natasha Sacouman argue in Micro Development Initiatives, Horizontal Linkages and Solidarity Action: Problems and Prospects in Nova Scotian and Peruvian Cases, that micro development initiatives are necessary but insufficient when working independent of one another in empowering development as I define it. On the other hand, horizontal networks of micro initiatives towards 'solidarity action' can provide a basis for empowering, transformative, structural changes that both address and improve the lives of the vast majority of the population. This thesis assesses the problems and prospects of building horizontal linkages towards solidarity action by focusing on the cases of Fishnet in Nova Scotia and nongovernmental organizations in Peru. It concludes with a sober assessment of the problems in building these horizontal networks. Nevertheless, a set of preliminary proposals is offered that enables and supports the establishment of horizontal networking. It also provides direction for building a unified effort towards eliminating the constraints of the various aspects of poverty.
