The aim of this paper is to present a retrospective of child poverty research in Estonia: how it has developed from the social and political acknowledgement of poverty as a social issue in the early 1990s onwards, and how child poverty research has contributed to the development of political thought. The paper follows the use of a new paradigm of childhood research, and revisits the methodological approaches and main research findings that have enhanced the understanding of children as a new policy interest group in politics.

Celem artykułu jest prezentacja badań nad biedą dzieci prowadzonych w Estonii od wczesnych lat 1990, gdy biedę uznano za kwestię społeczną, aż do dzisiaj, oraz wskazanie wkładu badań nad biedą dzieci w rozwój myślenia politycznego. Autorka ukazuje zastosowanie nowego paradygmatu w badaniach nad dzieciństwem, dokonuje także przeglądu strategii metodologicznych i rezultatów badawczych, które przyczyniły się do konceptualizacji dzieci jako nowej grupy interesów w polityce społecznej.
