Abstract

Child poverty is at the heart of the domestic agenda in the UK. The Government is committed to eradicating it by 2020. This article describes the anti child poverty strategy that is being pursued. It then explores the results so far and discusses why the government will fail to meet its interim target to halve child poverty by 2010. We were starting from a very bad position. The efforts to reduce child poverty began too late and were in the end too little. They also relied too much on employment targets which proved too ambitious. With a recession and the prospects of a change of government next year the prospects are not good.

This article is written in French.
