Overview

2016 UC Davis Poverty Research and Policy Summit
Presentations at UC Center Sacramento on April 22, 2016

The UC Davis Poverty Research and Policy Summit at UC Center Sacramento on April 22, 2016. The event brought together researchers, policymakers, practitioners and advocates to summarize and discuss the state of poverty research and public policy over the past decade, and how research can better inform policy in the decade to come.

Each session included presentations by the Center’s Faculty Affiliates and discussion by panels of public policy professionals. The sessions followed four key areas of research and policy: labor markets and poverty, the state of the safety net, children and the intergenerational transmission of poverty, and the intersections of poverty and immigration.
