Professor Sharon Bessell
25 October 2019, 9:30am-4:30pm
Crawford Building, ANU
Participants will have the opportunity to understand and critique assumptions on which mainstream measures of poverty are based, and the implications for policy. They will be introduced to tools to determine what kind of data they need to make informed policy decisions that are sensitive to gender, age and geographic location. They will have the opportunity to become familiar with the Individual Deprivation Measure (IDM), as an example of a gender-sensitive measure of multi-dimensional poverty, able to provide policy-relevant data to inform decision-making.
