TitleA multidimensional approach to the analysis of poverty and social exclusion among children
ParticipantsAmélia Bastos (Principal Investigator)
SummaryThis project continues the investigation initiated in the previous year. In this context, a joint
project with Rede Europeia Anti-Pobreza has been started aimimg at contruct a diagnosis of the
problem of child poverty in Portugal.

We apply a multidimensional approach to the problem of child poverty, considering the child as the
unit of observation and measurement.

The design of effective social policies to alleviate this problem is needed. However, to assure the
efficiency of such policies the knowledge of child poverty features is required. The research
developed in this project intends to contribute to this knowledge by designing a picture of the
problem and shedding light in its dynamics aspects.
