Abstract
  • Definitions of child poverty and measurement approaches are directly linked to poverty reduction strategies. The definition determines the measure and the measure, in turn, informs policies, which can subsequently reshape measurement approaches. Applying human rights approach and using method of document analysis, this research explores how the conceptualization and measurement of child poverty and adopted child-related social policies mutually reinforce each other in the US and Europe. The analysis showed that in the US, the monetary concept of the poverty and income based measurement are in line with policies targeting the boost of family income, while in the EU, the multidimensional approach to definition is associated with partially multidimensional measurement of child poverty and with more integrated and rights-based anti-poverty policies.
