Gerard Redmond

Adjunct Associate Professor

Gerry Redmond has been at the Social Policy Research Centre since 1997. Before that he was a social policy researcher both in the UK Department of Social Security (now the Department of Work and Pensions) and at the Department of Applied Economics, the University of Cambridge. Between 2001 and 2006 he was at the UNICEF Innocenti Research Centre, Florence, where he did research on children’s well-being in Eastern Europe and Central Asia. Gerry’s academic background is in sociology and social policy. His research interests encompass both the conceptualisation and measurement of child poverty and well-being in Australia and in other countries, with a broad focus children’s material wellbeing, their health, their developmental outcomes, and their own perspectives on their well-being.
