Impact of Poverty and Social Exclusion on Children’s Lives and their Well-being and Childwatch International Regional Network Meeting of Central Eastern European Countries
The workshop was a follow-up event of the international workshop “Children’s Experiences with Poverty and Social Exclusion – Challenges for Research and Policies”, which was held in Vienna in June 2007. Its aims were to strengthen the established platform for theoretical-methodological discussions concerning child poverty and social exclusion of children.
The workshop mainly focused on identifying the ways in which poverty and social exclusion affect children’s lives and their well-being, with particular reference to children’s health. The lives of children and their well-being from different perspectives, including their own perceptions and feelings, were the focus of discussion. The general framework of the workshop was rooted in child-centred research and part of the agenda of children’s rights.
