A Walk Off Beaten Track? New Frontiers in Measuring Poverty Monday 19 & Tuesday 20 November 2007 [30 July 2007]

We recently recieved notification of a conference on Poverty Measurement to be held in Maastricht on November 20th:


No one would disagree that poverty is a multidimensional concept. Only measuring monetary poverty neglects other social risks that have short and long run impacts on the wellbeing of households and individuals.
Over the years, different approaches emerged aimed at including non-monetary dimensions into the poverty concept. Other debates focus on the use of absolute versus relative poverty concepts, the measurement of poverty at the local level and the application of poverty analysis for policy development. This Advanced Academic Update is an excellent opportunity for professionals and academics engaged with development aid and poverty reduction within governmental institutions, international organizations and their counterparts the opportunity to get in depth knowledge of new concepts and methods. Please find attached the preliminary programme.

We invite you to visit our website to find more information about the programme, speakers and the practicalities (
