Thematic Focus

Thematic Focus

Life-long severe poverty has always been the fate of a majority of human beings. What is new in recent decades is that such poverty is almost entirely avoidable. In order to combat persistent poverty and growing inequality, it is necessary to have a better understanding of the nature, extent, depth, distribution, trends, causes and effects of poverty.

CROP's thematic focus is derived from its Strategic Plan 2015-2020. ​Six priority themes serve as a framework for the work and activities undertaken by CROP:

Thematic Focus- Agenda 2030 and the SDGs 150 85          Thematic Focus- Social Policies and Welfare States 

Thematic Focus- Human Development and Sustainability Science          Thematic Focus- Poverty and Media  

Thematic Focus- Child Poverty and Inequalities          Thematic Focus- Rights Institutionsand Global Justice
