Itfirstly provides an analytical framework for understanding the mechanisms by which poverty istransmitted from one generation to another and factors which might support resilience. It then presents a synthesis of relevant empirical evidence. Finally, it identifies policy instruments that mightplausibly limit transmission in different contexts.
