Opportunities and challenges in using research to influence policy on childhood poverty in low- and middle-income countries
An inter-disciplinary, mixed-methods, longitudinal study across four low- and middle-income countries, Young Lives was designed with the objective of reducing childhood poverty.

But the theoretical, conceptual, and practical challenges are many, as this talk highlights.
