Special Issue "Poverty and Child Well-Being"
A special issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (ISSN 1660-4601).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 December 2017)
Child poverty has repercussions not only for short-term hardship, but also for long-term health and development. Children who experience poverty, especially in the event that it happens at the early stages of their life or for a prolonged period, create the risk of a host of detrimental health and developmental outcomes. Evidently, the causes of child poverty are complex and multi-faceted, but there is proof that programs and policies that empower parents and raise family resources can advance child well-being. This Special Issue will offer readers a comprehensive look at: (1) the causes and effects of poverty on children’s well-being; (2) the contexts and mechanisms that affect the links between poverty and child well-being; and (3) policies and programs that may lead to improved child well-being. We welcome original articles that employ either quantitative, qualitative, or mixed-methods as well as critical reviews on this issue.
