Consultation Response: Northern Ireland's Draft Child Poverty Strategy

Mary Daly, Paddy Hillyard, Grace Kelly, Michael Tomlinson

Research output: Working paperDiscussion paper


The paper welcomes the initiative to set out a child poverty strategy, and its recognition that addressing these issues requires a long-term and wide-ranging strategy as well as a commitment to monitor this strategy with targets and indicators. The paper, however, notes a disjunction between the overall universalist aims stated in the strategy and the targeted approach of the strands set out to implement the strategy. The paper also notes that the narrow focus on tackling worklessness is insufficient.
