Show Summary Details


The chapter brings together the key lessons and themes of the book. Future studies of child poverty need to reflect international definitions which set out its multidimensional nature. Effective policies for alleviating child poverty in developing countries have long been known as demonstrated by work done during earlier economic crises. The principles enshrined in Townsend and Gordon's 2002 Manifesto of International Action to Defeat Poverty are still relevant to today's anti-poverty strategies.
