United Nations Children's Fund Unicef
Working Papers from eSocialSciences
The experience of childhood is increasingly urban. Over half the worldâ€™s people â€“ including more than a billion children â€“ now live in cities and towns. This report adds to the growing body of evidence and analysis, from UNICEF and partners, that scarcity and dispossession afflict the poorest and most marginalized children and families disproportionately. It shows that this is so in urban centres just as in the remote rural places we commonly associate with deprivation and vulnerability. [UNICEF].
