Who matters when decisions are made? Professor Sharon Bessell uses her expertise in social policy to shed light on why and how research can achieve social justice for those on the margins in this fourth lecture in the ANU Gender Institute’s Inspiring Women of ANU series.
Sharon Bessell is Professor at the Crawford School of Public Policy, where she is Director of Gender Equity and Diversity and heads the Children’s Policy Centre. She co-leads the ANU Individual Deprivation Measure (IDM) Program (with Associate Professor Janet Hunt). Sharon’s research interests revolve around issues of social justice and human rights, and focus on two broad areas. The first is social policy, social justice and the human rights of children. The second area of Sharon’s work is the gendered and generational dimensions of poverty.
