DSA Annual Conference: Understanding child and youth poverty: beyond ‘business as usual’
Based on moral, rights and economic grounds, the body of research on multidimensional child poverty has been greatly expanded in the last decade. Nevertheless, considerable knowledge gaps remain, compromising the efforts towards improving the lives of children and youth. It is therefore imperative to build on and push the existing research as we are moving into the post-2015 era. Novel ways of data collection and innovative practice in analysing new and existing data about child poverty and wellbeing of youth are required to move beyond ‘business as usual’.
The papers in this panel should aim to add to the debate by presenting new conceptual framings and methodological innovations for investigating poverty and wellbeing of children and/ or youth or offering empirical findings that illustrate a move beyond current practice. Topics can include longitudinal analysis of poverty, the use of mixed methods approaches and the role of under-researched factors in child and youth wellbeing such as aspirations, attitudes and agency.
