Kinderarmut und soziale Ausgrenzung in Großbritannien

  • Tess Ridge

Zusammenfassung

In Großbritannien ist das Thema Kinderarmut besonders dringlich, und es herrscht zunehmende Besorgnis über das Ausmaß von Kinderarmut, da eine wachsende Zahl von Kindern in Großbritannien soziale und materielle Nachteile in ihren Kindheitstagen erfahren. Die zunehmende Anzahl von Kindern, die unterhalb der Armutsgrenze leben, hat ein neues politisches Interesse am Wohlergehen von Kindern und ihren Familien erzeugt und gewährleistet, dass das Thema Kinderarmut schließlichvon der Peripherie ins Zentrum der Regierungspolitik gerückt ist. Dieser Beitrag untersucht die aktuelle Situation von Kindern, die in Großbritannien in Armut leben und umreißt die Schlüsselfaktoren, die ausschlaggebend dafür sind, ob ein Kind vermutlichArmut erleben wird. Er untersucht die Politik der füheren Labour Regierung, Armut und Benachteiligung in der Kindheit zu bekämpfen, und diskutiert die Auswirkungen dieser Politik auf die Anzahl der Kinder, die unterhalb der Armutsgrenze leben.
