Inter-generational transmission of poverty
OSE Paper Series, Research Paper No.49, October 2021, 68p.
This paper outlines what is meant by poverty and inter-generational transmission of poverty (IGTP), and why tackling child poverty must be central to combating IGTP. It then puts forward recommendations to combat IGTP - including ensuring adequate income and resources, guaranteeing access to quality essential services and to integrated delivery of policies and programmes, promoting children’s participation and fostering children’s aspirations, protecting the right to a family life, and fighting discrimination and stigmatisation.
