The United Nations Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, Olivier De Schutter, is conducting a worldwide study to discover the reasons why people and families who are eligible for certain benefits don’t receive them.

This study covers over 50 countries across all world regions. It seeks to identify the perceived reasons why non-take-up occurs, the impact of non-take-up, and possible ways of reducing this phenomenon.

  • Written submissions by organisations, including reports, articles, or other relevant written information, regarding non-take-up and related matters are welcomed in survey one here.
  • Individuals are also encouraged to share their own experiences in survey two here.

Survey one will close on the 7th November and survey two will close on the 28th November.
