Poverty in Latvia
This publication is one of a series of reports, working papers and student contributions from the project "Poverty, social assistance and social inclusion developments in Estonia and Latvia".
The project is carried through in cooperation between Tartu University in Estonia, University of Latvia and Fafo in Norway. The Research Council of Norway has funded the project.
The project contains 4 main issues:
Poverty trends and structures of social exclusion
Policy responses understandings of poverty alleviation and social inclusion
Social practice the implementation and impact of policies
Policy learning and possibilities for policy transfer
These four questions demand a multifaceted approach to methods and reporting, and are examined by a group of researchers in three countries. Consequently the reporting is diverse and the reporting presents the diversity of the project.
