UNESCO will organize a round table on "Measuring poverty and beyond" on 1 July 2015, as part of the programme of the 3RD NOPOOR Summer School which will be held at Paris-Dauphine University in Paris, France, from 26 June to 1 July 2015.

The Nopoor consortium brings together many northern and southern institutions which have a broad experience in training at graduate and doctoral level. It offers the opportunity to spread new knowledge in the different disciplines represented in the project (economics, statistics, sociology, law, political sciences, and demography) and expertise about some techniques such as statistics and surveys.

This training and capacity building expertise will be used and developed in the framework of the 3RD NOPOOR Summer School, which will focus on the topic "Measuring Poverty on a Multidisciplinary Basis".
