Intergenerational Transmission of Poverty in Sub-Saharan Africa

A Select Annotated Bibliography with special reference to irreversibilities associated with poor nutrition, health and education. It forms part of the third phase (2005-2010) of work of the Chronic Poverty Research Centre (CPRC), which is structured around three distinct themes that will be carefully sequenced and52-brotherandsister closely integrated: thematic research, policy analysis, and policy engagement. In particular, this bibliography is part of the foundation research theme Empirical Methods for Studying Intergenerational Transmissions of Poverty (IGT), which attempts to identify the extent to which such processes occur, the nature and reversibility of such processes in different contexts and occurring at different times, and the range of factors that increase the likelihood that poverty is passed from one generation to the next.
