As part of NoPoor Project's main goals to train and build capacities, the NoPoor Summer School was held from the 26th June to 1st July 2015 at Paris Dauphine University. For this year lectures, Measuring poverty on a multidisciplinary basis was the central topic developed by six top researchers from different institutions around the world. A round table co-organised with UNESCO closed this summer school.
Subjects such as poverty indexes, poverty data from synthetic panels and survey methods for better assessment were reviewed. This first Summer School gave students a new perspective to assess poverty data and dynamics. The lectures touched diverse topics in disciplines such as sociology, demography and anthropology in order to give a clear vision of the insides of poverty and how other social sciences could help economists to have better and stronger results.
