Understanding poverty in all its forms: reflections from participatory research on poverty with ATD Fourth World UK

Tuesday 18 February 2020, 4.30PM to 5.30pm

In this seminar, we will hear from activists at ATD Fourth World UK who collaborated with Oxford University on an ambitious participatory research project to explore and develop our understandings of poverty. The project was cross-national and collaborative and has led to the creation of a new framework for describing the experience of poverty, and what makes it distinctive.

Representatives from ATD will share the findings from the project, and reflect on the methodology, and discuss the possibilities (as well as the challenges) with participatory research projects such as this one.

There will be plenty of time for discussion and questions.

All welcome. Please email if you’d like to attend.

Tea, coffee and cake provided, so please let us know if you can attend for catering purposes and so we can be sure there is enough cake.
