Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses how child poverty differs from adult poverty, and presents a ‘human well-being’ or ‘three dimensional human well-being’ approach. It notes that although such an approach builds on much previous thinking regarding poverty and well-being, it is a relatively recent development, especially with regard to thinking about children, childhoods, and related policy interventions. The chapter also discusses the nature of child poverty and child well-being; introduces the ‘human well-being’ approach; and asks what this approach means for children.

Keywords: child poverty; adult poverty; three dimensional approach; child well-being
