One Great George Street Westminster, London SW1P 3AA


The prolonged period of squeezed living standards, and the changing nature of poverty, has led to the problem of low pay - and how best to address it - increasingly dominating the domestic policy agenda. This event presented the highlights from a programme of IFS research, supported by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, on poverty and low income.

IFS researchers set out the latest evidence, and the event included a panel discussion focussing on the big challenges for policy.
