The Young Lives is a long-term study of childhood poverty in developing countries. International experts follow two groups of children in poor communities in four countries as they grow into young adults with 5 survey rounds to interview all the children and their caregivers, interspersed with on-going participatory research with a smaller number of the children, planned to cover a period of 15 years. This book represents the engagement of Young Lives with researchers and debates in the field, reflecting on the first two rounds of data coming from countries such as Vietnam, Ethiopia, Congo, India, Peru and South Africa. Topics include the ethics of research, the long-term causes and consequences of childhood poverty, and the resilience and optimism shown by children and their families. The authors also look at the dynamics of childhood poverty - how and why some families move in and out of poverty as well as learning, children's time-use and life transitions - focusing on children's daily lives, their families and communities.

Review:

'This is the first book reporting on a unique and exciting programme investigating the changing situation of poor children over time in four developing countries. As well as reporting on important methodological innovations and comparative quantitative analysis of the evolving situation across the four countries, this uplifting book should be read for its unprecedented insights into children's own experience, perspectives, understanding and aspirations.' – Frances Stewart, Emeritus Professor of Development Economics and Director of CRISE, University of Oxford, UK

'This volume is bound to challenge the orthodoxy, while at the same time offering avenues for orthopraxy. It offers a welcome antidote against a common flaw in economic research, namely statistics without context. The reader will gain a better understanding of childhood poverty from the book's combination of different methods of analyses with innovative sources of information.' – Jan Vandemoortele, formerly with UNICEF and UNDP; now independent researcher, writer and lecturer

Book Description:

This unique volume brings together leading thinkers from a range of disciplines who present the most recent research from the Young Lives study of childhood poverty
