Child poverty, youth (un)employment and social inclusion

Child poverty, youth (un)employment and social inclusion

WORKSHOP organised by CROP, the Institute of Labour, and Democritus University of Thrace

19-21 November 2014 | Athens, Greece

Workshop programme

This workshop will focus on the crucial issue of child and youth poverty and critically raise the question of what policy strategies can break the vicious cycle of intergenerational poverty transmission. The lack of protection against child poverty not only constitutes a violation of basic human rights but it also entails high social and economic costs. Living in poverty has a negative impact on their current family and social life as well as on the long-term.

It seems opportune at this point in history to critically assess the progress made in terms of child (and youth) poverty reduction and the improvement of access to decent labour conditions. This kind of evaluation can be enriched by discussing new theoretical approaches on both the short and long-term causes and consequences, with a particular emphasis on decent labour as a main factor of social inclusion.

Participation in the academic workshop is limited to paper presenters.
