About the Author:

Gunter Graf is a postdoctoral researcher at the Centre for Ethics and Poverty Research, where he works in the project group for 'Social Justice and Child Poverty'. He is also a Research Fellow at the International Research Centre for Social and Ethical Questions in Salzburg. He mainly works in political and social philosophy, with a focus on the capability approach and its relation to poverty and children.

Gottfried Schweiger works at the Centre for Ethics and Poverty Research at the Paris Lodron University of Salzburg, where he is the principal investigator of the project 'Social Justice and Child Poverty' funded by the Austrian Science Fund. His main areas of interest and research are social and political philosophy.

Review:

“I hope it will be clear that Schweiger and Graf's book is full of important insights and information. It provides a comprehensive theory of child poverty with very strong implications for political practice and thereby exemplifies a very successful blend of political philosophy and social science. Moreover, it provides a fertile ground for further philosophical and social scientific debate. It is simply a must read for everyone interested in the problem of child poverty.” (Christian Neuhäuser, Ethical Perspectives, Vol. 23 (4), 2016)

“Book makes a valuable contribution to our understanding of child poverty and the resources within the Capability Approach (CA) to analyse the ways in which poverty disadvantages children. As they note, capability theorists have not, until relatively recently, devoted much attention to how the capability theory might be developed and extended to children. Schweiger and Graf helpfully explore how capability theory can be sensitive to the special vulnerabilities that children exhibit as well as to their status as developing agents.” (Colin Macleod, Ethical Perspectives, Vol. 23 (4), 2016)

“Schweiger and Graf's A Philosophical Examination of Social Justice and Child Poverty breaks new ground and fills an important gap in the literature. The book provides us with a much needed platform for further discussions about the challenges of child poverty in our world today and about how justice theorising can respond.” (Krushil Watene, Ethical Perspectives, Vol. 23 (4), 2016)

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 204 pages. 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. But child poverty is not given by nature. It is avoidable and there is certainly the moral duty to alleviate it. Therefore, Graf and Schweiger develop a normative theory of responsibilities, which clarifies the moral role of different agents in the poor childs environment: the family, the state and many others, that have so far been neglected in philosophical theories. They conclude their book by sketching how their theory can be extended to global child poverty and what it means to show equal respect and concern for every child - no matter where and in which context they were born. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Bookseller Inventory # 9781137559463
