    Andreu Arenas, Caterina Calsamiglia, Annalisa Loviglio

Its prevalence is, in part, a product of the lack of information and the paucity of studies which analyse the wide-ranging consequences for the individuals involved. The main objective of...

    Poverty in Spain and Europe. Effects of COVID-19

    Unfortunately, we can find pockets of poverty, inequality and social exclusion even in the midst of the most developed countries; those that have the most consolidated level of wellbeing. This IEB Report analyses the current situation of poverty in Spain and Europe. Although the differences between countries are notable, poverty...
