Summary

The research project "Social Justice and Child Poverty" will examine child poverty from a social justice perspective. In three interrelated research areas, it aims at answering three key questions: What special content does social justice have for children? What kinds of violations of social justice are inherent in child poverty? Who are the agents having the obligations to alleviate child poverty and secure social justice for those children in poverty? All three of these questions are of high social and philosophical importance and to a great extent unanswered in contemporary philosophical research. While there is a growing literature on children as well as poverty from different normative perspectives, the topic of child poverty is nearly non-existent in philosophy as one of its own right. We will therefore develop a first comprehensive and systematic philosophical examination of child poverty from a social justice perspective situated within the capability approach and based on a thorough examination not only of the philosophical but also of the relevant social scientific literature. We will explicitly recognise insights into the special status of childhood and child poverty that separates it from adult poverty and demands particular attention.

The project is funded by the FWF - Austrian Science Fund and will run from April 1, 2014 until March 31, 2017. Besides the project supervisor, Gottfried Schweiger, two more postdoctoral reserachers will be involved, whose position are funded by the grant. The total funding is nearly 200.000 Euros plus overhead.
