GINI DP 76: Successful policy mixes to tackle child poverty: an EU-wide comparison

  • András Gábos


    (TÁRKI Social Research Institute.)

Registered author(s):

    This paper strongly builds on the results of the project Child poverty and child well-being in the European Union. The project was commissioned by the DG Employment, Social Affairs and Equal Opportunities (Unit E.2) and coordinated by TÁRKI and Applica (Brussels) between December 2008 and December 2009. The methodology presented in this paper is rooted in that elaborated by the EU Task- Force on Child Poverty and Child Well-Being (2008). Paper presented at the 8th ESPAnet conference 2010 Stream 2A – Poverty and social exclusion. Some updates compared to the ESPAnet conference paper are already included in the text, while others appear in the Annex, as tables or figures only. The first draft of this paper was also presented at interim workshop of the GINI project on 10-11 November 2011, in Antwerp. The author is grateful for the comments received at both events, as well as for those provided by an anonymous reviewer ensuring the internal quality control of the project deliverables. All errors or omissions remain the sole responsibility of the author.
