Poverty and Mindset Report (Intergenerational poverty)
The European Commission has published a report on tackling intergenerational poverty. This report takes a multidisciplinary approach, focusing on how poverty and exclusion affect behaviour, aspirations, hope and agency, which can all be essential drivers to social mobility. Evidence suggests that the experience of poverty itself seems to contribute to the transmission of poverty to the next generation.
The report suggests that tackling poverty requires improving economic conditions and ensuring real, actual access to quality education, employment, housing and health services.
