Fami - Norwegian Centre for Research on Poverty and Social Assistance

is a research collaboration between Fafo - Institute for Applied Social Science and NOVA - Norwegian Social Research. Fami receives funding from the Norwegian Research Council over a period of six years from 2003 to 2008. It is our ambition that the centre shall foster research of high international standards, and we are at the same time concerned that the centre's activities shall help inform the Norwegian public debate and be of relevance for the development of policy strategies and specific measures to confront problems of poverty and social exclusion. The activities of Fami will be focussed on the following main topics.
