Engaging systematically with severe forms of poverty in Europe, this important book stimulates academic, public, and policy debate by shedding light on aspects of deprivation and exclusion of people in absolute poverty in affluent societies. It examines issues such as access to health care, housing and nutrition, poverty-related shame, and violence. The book investigates different policy and civic responses to extreme poverty, ranging from food donations to penalization of highly the visibly poor and how it is related to concerns of ethics, justice and human dignity.
