Editors' Choice

The latest Editor’s choice selection covers three Articles examining the impact of wider, long-term policies and trends on poverty. The first looks at the impact of the neoliberal housing policy of increased marketisation and less government on vulnerable households in England. The second examines the tightening of welfare systems in relation to the introduction of mandatory work programmes in the Netherlands and the extent to which it infringes, or not, the right to work. And the third delves into why poverty is increasingly discussed as a problem that can have medical or psychological causes, examining the contribution articles on poverty published between 1956 and 2017 might have made to this trend. All three are based on solid research and provide important insights into these questions.
