|Description:||WIDER Conference on Frontiers of Poverty Analysis|
|Location:||Marina Congress Center, Helsinki, Finland|
|Subject:||In recent decades poverty research has changed almost beyond recognition, along with the techniques used in analytic work. Yet many researchers remain unaware of the many ways in which the frontiers of poverty analysis have been extended. The aim of this conference is to help rectify the situation in two ways. First, by surveying the novel concepts and tools developed for poverty research over the past 25 years. Second, by presenting papers that illustrate well the range of concepts and techniques now available for use in poverty analysis.
