Poverty in the United States is a complex problem, and no individual research discipline or approach will solve it. These short videos provide a basic foundation for understanding the causes and consequences of poverty in the U.S. and possible solutions suggested by research today.
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.
These lectures are part of a UC Davis hybrid course on poverty and public policy taking place in 2016. The course is led by Ann Huff Stevens, a Professor of Economics and Director of the Center for Poverty Research.
