International and Historical Anti-poverty Strategies: Evidence and Policy Review
Source: New Policy Institute (UK)
Aim of this report:
This report aims to do two things. Firstly, it sets out how poverty in the UK compares to other countries, in Europe and elsewhere. Secondly, it compares approaches to reducing poverty across these countries, to look for evidence of strategies that work across the whole population.
This report considers the many different strategies for reducing poverty, across the UK, Europe, North America and Brazil. No single strategy has been unambiguously successful, though some have been associated with significant reductions in poverty over a long period. There are many examples of well-intentioned strategies that fail to achieve the political purchase necessary for success.
