Summary This study sheds new light on the issue of why poverty is never a 'neutral' phenomenon, but rather is always the result of more or less explicit social and political constructions. It illustrates how poverty and anti-poverty policies have been conceived, designed and implemented in Central Eastern Europe over the last century. The way in which social inclusion policies are conceived and constructed not only affects the final shape of poverty but also helps to define the very nature of each welfare system.
