Summary
"Why does child poverty exist in industrialized countries? In an attempt to answer this question, this book examines monetary and non-monetary poverty among immigrant children in Western Europe, with particular reference to France and Switzerland. Set within the context of the current controversial debate on European immigration policy, this book presents an analysis of empirical data on immigrant child poverty and discusses the suitability of existing approaches such as justice-as-fairness and capability, while providing an alternative approach based on child rights and social justice. The book examines the impact of low incomes of immigrant parents and their precarious legal status in the host country which handicaps them in education, employment and the housing market." -- Book cover
