While most children in the UK are not as materially poor as their counterparts in the South, child poverty certainly exists. In the UK, as in the South, poverty consists of lack of access to what is generally regarded as a reasonable standard and quality of life. It is also a state of powerlessness, whereby people feel excluded from society and unable to make any changes for the better in their lives. There has been increasing interest in examining and comparing the nature of poverty and policies, approaches and methods used to tackle poverty and social exclusion in both the North and the South. Drawing on Save the Children UK and other organizations' experiences working in the UK and globally, this book explores the sorts of links that have already been made between countries in the South and the North. The focus of this working paper is on the transfer of knowledge, education for global citizenship and global alliances and networks. It critically examines and appraises this range of initiatives with the aim of drawing out useful lessons of good practice for Save the Childen UK and other global programming organizations.
