Abstract

This CROP brief sets out how the Consensual Approach can be used to measure child poverty in high, middle and low income countries. This brief argues that: • Conventional estimates of poverty relying on minimalist definitions and indicators underplay its extent and nature. • The consensual, or democratic, approach produces valid and reliable indicators with which to estimate poverty and reflect on its multidimensional nature. • The consensual approach has been successfully used to assess child poverty in both high and low income countries. • It offers a unique opportunity to go beyond the “what is” to the “what should be”.
