Rethinking Poverty: Making Policies that Work for Children, sponsored by the Graduate School in International Affairs at The New School and UNICEF

April 21 to 23, 2008 · The New School, New York, United States

This was the fourth International Conference organized by the Graduate Program in International Affairs at the New School and UNICEF. The specific aim of the 2008 Conference was to review and mobilize the agenda on child poverty and disparity. The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) mark an international commitment to eradicating extreme poverty and hunger, and to fostering global collaboration. Despite some progress towards the MDGs targets, millions of children remain outside of the policy agenda and unaffected by the progress. The Conference created a space for peer consultation among UNICEF international staff, The New School faculty and students, other academic and research institutions, NGO practitioners, and other external experts.  Further, the Conference will included and extended work done by UNICEF’s Global Study on “Child Poverty and Social Disparities.”
