Our work substantiates the view that, not only is the experience of poverty among the cumulative causes of shame for individual respondents living in poverty, this shame also undermines their agency. These findings make the consideration of shame paramount when developing effective social policy. This chapter introduces a volume that builds upon these findings and is the culmination of the group’s work. It systematically considers the relationship between anti-poverty policy and the possibility for heightened shame in vastly different economic and cultural environments, linking substantive findings to policy relevance.
