CORG is the research pillar of a consortium comprised of a government organization (DG of Social Affairs and Child Protection) and an NGO (Hungarian Charity Service of the Order of Malta).It conducts basic and applied, policy-oriented research to create, strengthen, and monitor programs that exist to reduce and ultimately eradicate child poverty. Researchers in sociology, economics, anthropology, and social policy are working together in the team. By approaching poverty in an interdisciplinary way—addressing persistent issues within education, healthcare, economics, and social welfare—this research program aims to provide strategic, long-term, and sustainable solutions for thousands of children and their families nationwide.
CORG’s research is driven by the strong belief that no child should ever have to experience poverty. In working with affected communities directly, and providing research and methodological support to government agencies and NGOs, the team strives to better the lives of children in need.
