This study draws on a range of qualitative and quantitative information available on a variety of issues relevant to a multidimensional understanding of child poverty in Sri Lanka. By assessing the literature available from a range of research institutions and government departments, the authors attempt to provide an overview of priority issues facing deprived, excluded and vulnerable children in Sri Lanka, as well as identifying research gaps. It is envisaged that this study can be used as a source of statistics and information for those working with deprived, excluded and vulnerable children as well as for those who have an interest in child poverty.
