The hidden dimensions of poverty research

The International Movement ATD Fourth World, in collaboration with the University of Oxford, conducted an international participatory research to define new indicators of poverty. The research is titled “The Hidden Dimensions of Poverty” and was conducted in six countries: Bangladesh, Bolivia, United States, France, United Kingdom and Tanzania. For three years, people experiencing poverty, professionals and academics have worked together to refine the understanding of poverty and its multidimensional aspects, in order to contribute in the long term to the development of more relevant policies aimed at eradicating of poverty. Nine interdependent dimensions common to all countries have been defined.
