European Perspective on Poverty and Poor People

Pobreza e Perspectivas Europeias

In this book, conceptions of, and perspectives on, poverty and poor people are presented with consequences for the field of measurement and evaluation. It is in this context that one analyses the emergence, development and relevance of social intervention directed at the problem of poverty and the population suffering from it. Some policies and measures of supranational bodies are approached, with the aim of relating the dimension of the problem with the nature of the public strategies designed to combat poverty.
