This working paper examine the macro-micro impacts of the 1990s crisis in order to assesst he impact pathways through which macroeconomic shocks affected children, youth and caregivers, and the extent to which different packages of economic and social policy responses mitigated the negative impacts on child well-being. If focuses on four countries most affected by the crisis: Indonesia, South Korea, Malaysia and Thailand.
