Child and Adolescent Poverty Overview

The Center’s vision for the future

Research Center for Child and Adolescent Poverty will function as a catalyst for poverty research in Japan. Even though child poverty is becoming one of the research topics in various academic fields, this trend might, or might not, be only temporary. We hope that poverty study will take root in Japan’s academia by keep presenting the findings to the various respective societies from this Research Center.
 In the future, we will write textbooks on poverty, establish lectures on poverty in education, sociology and social welfare studies, and develop poverty education programs for trainee teachers and social workers, and also for high school students.
