Chronic Poverty Research Center (CPRC)

The Chronic Poverty Research Centre (CPRC) is an international partnership of universities, research institutes and NGOs which exists to focus attention on chronic poverty. CPRC is undertaking specific policy analysis which seeks to examine potential gender related entry points for addressing chronic poverty. This stream of work is focusing on gender-specific variables including opportunities for political engagement, legal representation, reproductive health, education, and ownership of assets. Each area of policy analysis is related to the work of CPRC’s 5 research themes: poverty dynamics, intergenerational poverty, insecurity, risk and vulnerability, assetlessness and inequality and adverse incorporation and social exclusion.
