A summary of the output of the Centre for Analysis of Social Exclusion: The work programme of the Centre includes monitoring social spending, policies and outcomes in the UK, international comparisons of poverty and of the association between social outcomes and labour market and welfare institutions, analysing patterns of social inequality, including wealth inequality, between groups and over time, developing applications of the capability approach and human rights measurement, and studying the intersection of climate change policy and social policy; as well as studies focused on particular groups and policy areas such as vulnerable children and early years education. We have close links with the LSE’s International Inequalities Institute and are pursuing a joint programme with the Institute on the relationship between economic inequality and multidimensional poverty, supported by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation. CASE also incorporates the research and consultancy group LSE Housing and Communities, which investigates the impact of policies on social housing and other tenures with a particular focus on residents in disadvantaged areas.
