The ‘Power of Partnership: Research to Alleviate Poverty’ conference recently took place in Delhi, India from 3-5 December.

The event focused on the ESRC-DFID Joint Fund for Poverty Alleviation Research as it approaches its final phase.

The exclusion of deaf children and young adults from access to school systems results in individuals and communities being denied quality education, leading to unemployment, underemployment, low income, and a high risk of poverty.

Children in conflict-affected countries (CACs) experience profound constraints on their academic learning and socioemotional well-being. Children exposed to violence and poverty come to "school" (formal or non-formal education settings) with poor executive function skills (e.g. working memory, inhibition, attention), emotional/behavioral regulation skills and social-information-processing skills.

Our Youth Uncertainty Rights Research – YOUR World Research – has co-constructed a youth-centred qualitative methodology with national researchers and the young people we work with. By carrying out 250 detailed case studies in each country and working with over 1000 youth overall, we are gaining a better understanding of youth complex experiences of poverty and marginalisation and how informal community and peer networks, non-government and government organisation can support them towards better futures.
