Societies and states have gone through major
transformations in the last few decades.
Globalization and domestic reforms have restructured
states and created new winners and losers at the
societal level. Moreover, the new dynamics that have
shaped the state policies towards the disadvantaged
groups have transformed the nature of poverty with
an increased emphasis on inequality and social
exclusion rather than absolute poverty. Although
children have been historically among the groups
that are first and foremost influenced by the course
of poverty, the way they are affected have changed
leading up to emergence of new forms of child
labour. This book focuses on the concept of New
Poverty to explain emergence and expansion of
working street children at similar time periods, in
two very different countries: Turkey and Romania.
