A Philosophical Examination of Social Justice and Child Poverty

by G. Schweiger and G. Graf

This book is open access under a CCBY license.   Child poverty is one of the biggest challenges of today, harming millions of children. In this book, it is investigated from a philosophical social justice perspective, primarily in the context of modern welfare states. Based on both normative theory (particularly the capability approach) and empirical evidence, the authors identify the injustices of child poverty, showing how it negatively affects the well-being of children as well as their whole life course.

Policies to Address Poverty in America

by Melissa S. Kearney and Benjamin H. Harris

One-in-seven adults and one-in-five children in the United States live in poverty. Individuals and families living in poverty �not only lack basic, material necessities, but they are also disproportionally afflicted by many social and economic challenges. Some of these challenges include the increased possibility of an unstable home situation, inadequate education opportunities at all levels, and a high chance of crime and victimization.Given this growing social, economic, and political concern, The Hamilton Project at Brookings asked academic experts to develop policy proposals confronting the various challenges of America's poorest citizens, and to introduce innovative approaches to addressing poverty.� When combined, the scope and impact of these proposals has the potential to vastl...
