During both days at the Poverty Assembly a number of evidence sessions will be held. The first of which will take place after lunch on day 1 and aims to identify the main issues and causes of poverty in each particular theme. There are 6 different sessions themes that will be covered in later posts.
Evidence will be given by academics, civil society organisations and community activists with direct experience of this area. Discussions aim to identify main issues and causes on the particular theme focusing on priorities, what has changed in trends, what has persisted and the prospects beyond 2014.
The first evidence session starts at 13.45 on Monday the 28th in Pollock Halls, University of Edinburgh.
