In western cities child poverty is an often hidden phenomenon masked by the overall prosperity of cities. It often concentrates in specific highly segregated neighbourhoods. Child poverty has many faces and affects children’s development in a number of negative ways.

The Child in the City International Seminar wants to focus on both expanding our knowledge of child poverty and building on solutions in the form of best practices and innovative policies.

Local authorities, urban planners, researchers, children’s rights advocates and NGO’s will meet on 21-22 November in Leeds, UK.
