The Social Costs of Poverty

The Social Costs of Poverty

So far little is known about the hidden costs of poverty to the non-poor. While it is recognised in general that both society at large and in particular certain groups, actually gain from a limited amount of poverty, this phenomenon has not been studied in depth.

20-21 May 1996 | Bergen, Norway

So far little is known about the hidden costs of poverty to the non-poor. While it is recognised in general that both society at large and in particular certain groups, actually gain from a limited amount of poverty, this phenomenon has not been studied in depth. Another phenomenon which so far has been neglected are the hidden costs of poverty for the non-poor, as seen for example in increased policing and social control measures, the individual's time energy and money spent in protecting himself or herself from the fear stemming from poverty, dual educational systems, and differential land use.
The workshop discussed these issues.
