Show Summary Details


This chapter extends 3D thinking on child poverty and well-being to consider knowledge and evidence generation. It explores the knowledge base that underpins dominant understandings of childhood poverty and well-being, given this book's focus on the knowledge–policy interface around childhoods in the developing world. The chapter reviews trends in thinking about the generation of evidence in development studies, and then discusses how these broader debates have played out in the case of childhood poverty and well-being. It focuses particularly on emerging thinking about 3D approaches via combining research methods, and explores the particular challenges and opportunities of such approaches to child well-being.

Keywords: 3D thinking; child poverty; knowledge–policy interface; generation of evidence
