Biography

Professor Gabrielle Meagher’s research engages with pressing problems in social policy and the world of work. These themes come together in her research on the way social care services are practised, organised, distributed, experienced and understood by different groups. She works with colleagues in Australia and Sweden to understand how policies to ‘make markets’ in social services are transforming the welfare states in these two countries.

Care work, marketization and privatization of social services, Australian and comparative social policy.
