Child Poverty in Times of Crisis

Conference of the "Centre Ethics and Poverty Research" (CEPR) and "Acadamics Stand Against Poverty" (ASAP)

The aim of this conference is threefold: (1) to discuss how different crises (like the recent economic downturn, political instability, natural disasters or (civil) war) affect child poverty; (2) to reveal the consequences such crises have on children living in poverty and their families as well as to show how they respond; and, finally, (3) to provide suggestions for international, national and local policy designs for the reaction to such crises. We are interested in bringing together empirical and theoretical papers and in discussing the normative and ethical issues attached to child poverty and related policy making.

Keynote speakers: Mario Biggeri (Florence) & Lucinda Platt (LSE)
