Leading economists, sociologists and social policy experts document with new and up-to-date empirical material the changing profiles of poverty and social deprivation in Southern Europe, Turkey, the Balkans, North Africa, and the Near East. What emerges is a comparison of social trends shared across the region, as well as the huge diversity of public responses and policies to the challenges of poverty and social inequality.
