內容簡介


Hong Kong has remained a wealthy financial hub but its income inequality is greater than that in any developed economy. The growing unequal income distribution and poverty in Hong Kong have aroused public concern. This book brings together some of Hong Kong’s and the UK’s leading experts to examine poverty in Hong Kong from three perspectives: 1, public understanding of poverty, and the extent of poverty and social exclusion in Hong Kong society, 2, poverty and health as well as child poverty and educational opportunities in Hong Kong, and 3, effectiveness of poverty alleviation measures in Hong Kong. On this basis, this book timely advances the theory and practice of poverty and social exclusion measurement, and will inspire comparative research and policy analyses for better policy initiatives.

This collection was inspired by the workshop formed one key research output of the Poverty and Social Exclusion in Hong Kong (PSEHK) project funded by the Research Grants Council and the UK Economic and Social Research Council (http://www.poverty.hk/).
