Child poverty solutions in selected countries
CASE has been commissioned by the Itla Children's Foundation in Finland to conduct a review of published international evidence on policies and programmes designed to reduce child poverty. The evidence review will focus on policies to reduce child poverty among key vulnerable groups: large families, single-parent families, and migrant families (first generation migrants).
The review will be grounded on an agreed definition of child poverty and assess policies through a common framework including evidence of their effectiveness, implementation challenges and facilitating factors. International evidence will be drawn mainly from a selection of countries to include New Zealand, Scotland, Australia, Belgium and the Netherlands. This selection comprises countries with active policy initiatives seeking to reduce child poverty, and examples of strategies addressing multidimensional child poverty beyond social security policy.
The review will be conducted by Abigail McKnight, Irene Bucelli, with Kitty Stewart acting in an advisory capacity. The results will be published early next year.
