Poverty, Child Maintenance and Interactions with Social Assistance Schemes Seminar

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventConference participation


This two day international seminar delivered in London, will consider the potential contribution of private child maintenance/child support payments to poverty reduction in separated families. Uniquely, the complex interactions between child maintenance systems and social assistance schemes will be explored across a range of countries. These interactions can reduce the value of payments in different ways across countries but are easily overlooked in national and comparative analyses making it difficult to rely on some comparisons. Dr Skinner gave a presentation with Dr Antonia Keung: 'Non-resident father poverty: An Analysis of the Family Resources Survey in the UK'
