He is currently the Thomas W. Lamont University Professor and Professor of Economics and Philosophy at Harvard University. He is also a senior fellow at the Harvard Society of Fellows and a Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge, where he previously served as Master from the years 1998 to 2004.

What new insight into poverty — if any — is provided by the approach of social exclusion? This paper from the Asian Development Bank scrutinises the nature, relevance and reach of the idea of social exclusion, as well as its usefulness outside the European context in which it arose, with particular attention to Asia. It argues that this approach does indeed offer useful insights for poverty diagnostics and policy, if used with discrimination and scrutiny. Although the term social exclusion is of relatively recent origin, it has already made substantial inroads into discussions and writings on poverty and deprivation. The term is seen as covering a wide range of social and economic problems, sometimes to excess, and its critics have been as vocal as its advocates. In fact, this idea has conceptual connections with well-established notions in the literature on poverty and deprivation and has antecedents that are far older than the specific history of the terminology might suggest.
