Child Poverty Insights - a UNICEF online publication
Child Poverty Insights (CPI) - a UNICEF online publication for sharing insights, experiences and innovative developments on issues of child poverty, deprivation and inequity. Since the launch of the series in August 2009, 18 Insights on a variety of topics have been published, well-received by thousands of people in over 150 countries.
Starting from April 2012, each CPI will respond to one of three important areas of child poverty and inequity, namely:
§ Evidence: where high quality research results that focus on children’s inequity issues are reported
§ Think Pieces: where new approaches to measuring or approaching child poverty and inequity are introduced
§ Practice: where real-world programmes are discussed to show examples of ‘best practice’ in responding to child poverty and inequity
We hope that having these specific themes will help focus evidence sharing on areas that are most relevant to advancing children’s rights and improving child well-being. Our refocus is also one to be more responsive to suggestions from those working on child poverty. We hope that this approach can allow a wider circulation as well as increased levels of contributions from those working in applied research, NGOs and in the field. We especially encourage those working in the field to share suggestions with us and our new ‘Practice’ theme will be specifically aimed to share lessons on what works across practitioners and analysts among the readership of CPI and on the Child Poverty Network.
