Free text This study is based on first-hand experiences in six different countries – Burkina Faso, Guatemala, Haiti, the Philippines, the United Kingdom and the United States – to provide an analysis of the effects of poverty on parent – child relations, especially on their separation. In the course of this action-oriented research, the first steps towards a settlement of the crises of a family break-up were achieved by proposing to parents and children useful tools to help them become protagonists in finding solutions to their predicament. The field work of ATD Fourth World and other NGOs made it possible to define new bearings, intended particularly for public policy makers, to safeguard parent – child relations in the context of abject poverty (access to a quality education system for every child, developing new educational activities for the entire population, providing social justice for all, supporting families in their search for jobs and a decent place to live, etc.). The IRC has an English and a Frensh version of the document.It does also exist a Spanish version.
