9781847424457: Child poverty, evidence and policy: Mainstreaming children in international development

This book is about the opportunities and challenges involved in mainstreaming knowledge about children in international development policy and practice. It focuses on the ideas, networks and institutions that shape the development of evidence about child poverty and wellbeing, and the use of such evidence in development policy debates. It also pays particular attention to the importance of power relations in influencing the extent to which children's voices are heard and acted upon by international development actors. The book weaves together theory, mixed method approaches and case studies spanning a number of policy sectors and diverse developing country contexts in Africa, Asia and Latin America. It therefore provides a useful introduction for students and development professionals who are new to debates on children, knowledge and development, whilst at the same time offering scholars in the field new methodological and empirical insights.

About the Author:

Nicola A. Jones, Overseas Development Institute, London and Andy Sumner, Institute of Development Studies, University of Sussex

Review:

This book is a significant and timely contribution to an improved understanding of the neglected but all-too-important subject of Child Poverty and what to do about it. It is a 'must read' for researchers and policy makers interested in child poverty and evidence-based advocacy and public policy. Dr. Assefa Bequele, Director, African Child Policy Forum

Jones and Sumner provide a sophisticated analysis of the multi-dimensional interplay between evidence and policy on child poverty. The result is a compelling account of why child poverty in developing countries needs to be tackled by increasing children's visibility, voice and vision in both knowledge generation and policy processes. Academics and policy audiences alike will find it invaluable. Sandra Nutley, Professor of Public Management, University of Edinburgh Business School
