The intergenerational transmission of poverty is persistent despite concerted efforts and considerable investment by governments and charitable organisations to break the cycle of disadvantage. Dr Ivy Papps will talk about the factors that contribute to poverty, including education gaps, and address the questions: How can governments evaluate initiatives to address disadvantage?  What do we acutally know from international research on poverty reduction policies?  Why do we not implement policies with a good track record?
