Policies for interrupting the intergenerational transmission of poverty in developed countries. CPRC Working Paper 199.
This paper describes entry points for policy and programmes to attempt to interrupt chronic and intergenerational (IGT) poverty and to build the resilience of chronically poor families in developed countries. The analysis is based on case studies of five policies and programmes in four countries (UK, USA, Germany and Denmark), drawing on secondary literature and key informant interviews. Tentative conclusions are drawn about both impacts on IGT poverty and transferability to the developing world.
