- "The Young Lives project is a long-term study of childhood poverty in developing countries. International experts follow two groups of children in poor communities in four countries as they grow into young adults with five rounds of surveys every three years, interspersed with on-going participatory research with a smaller number of the children, planned to cover a period of 15 years. This book represents the engagement of Young Lives with researchers and debates in the field, reflecting on the first two rounds of data coming from countries such as Vietnam, Ethiopia, Congo, India, Peru and South Africa. Topics include the ethics of research, the long-term causes and consequences of childhood poverty, and the resilience and optimism shown by children and their families. The authors also look at the dynamics of childhood poverty - how and why some families move in and out of poverty as well as learning, children's time-use and life transitions - focusing on children's daily lives, their families and communities"--Provided by publisher.
