Resumen: The work presented in this volume deepens the understanding of how shocks affect children and youth in two ways: 1) Evidence on various developmental outcomes across developmental stages from conception to adulthood (broadly defined by the transition to work); 2) Impact of crises that will differ according to the social and environmental contexts in which the child or young person grows and that shocks can in turn affect those contexts. Effort is made to understand the short- and long-term impacts of crises, and whether it is possible to identify particular protective factors that support childrenís recovery from the worst ravages of the crisis. The focus on transmission mechanisms, the pathways of influence, leads to a set of broad policy recommendations for enhancing both protection and recovery. This volume incorporates the knowledge and evidence on shocks and human development from a variety of disciplinary perspectives, from economics to sociology, anthropology, and social and developmental psychology.
