Thinking about Chronic Urban Poverty

Philip Amis


This short paper examines the issue of chronic urban poverty for the Chronic Poverty Research Centre (CPRC) . The reports aim is twofold: firstly to review the relevant literature and secondly to suggest research topics and ideas for the first two years of what is envisaged as a five year project. As will become apparent the literature on chronic urban poverty is almost non existent; thus a lot of what follows is an attempt to reconsider more general urban poverty literature through a chronic poverty lens. Finally it is intended as a first attempt to develop some 'working hypothesises' to guide further ongoing research in what is anticipated as a five year research project.
