Education, Poverty and Inequality in South Asia

Research question/goal: 

South Asia is affected by high levels of poverty and inequality with high levels of exclusion from the education system particularly of girls. While primary enrolment of girls has seen large increases, many girls drop out of education not only because of poverty but also because of child marriage and corresponding social norms. Education of girls that dropped out of the regular education system is thus of particular concern. The research project is looking into possible approaches that could foster education of these children.
