Global Trends in Child Poverty and Their Policy Implications

Friday, March 31 - 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Sky Hall, 21st Fl. Post Tower, Seoul, Korea

Organized by KIHASA

Building a healthy environment for children for their growth and development is one of the essential solutions to the low fertility crisis facing our society. Providing support and protection to the children is an investment in the future. Poverty and inequality among children are social problems that threaten the sustainable development and integration of our society, requiring our continued attention and efforts to alleviate them. By and large, however, child poverty has so far been a neglected topic in this country.


At this Forum, Thevenon Olivier from the OECD and Yeo Eugene from the KIHASA will present on 'the drivers of child poverty in OECD countries' and 'multidimensional approach to child poverty in Korea' respectively, followed by a discussion by a panel of experts.


Join us at the Forum for a lively conversation on this important topic.


Speakers Include:

- Thevenon Olivier, Social Policy Economist, ELS, Social Policy Division, OECD

- Yeo Eugene, Director, Basic Social Security Research Department, KIHASA
