Portrait of Francesca Bastagli

Francesca's main area of work is social policy, with a focus on the design, implementation and evaluation of social protection policies and their poverty, inequality and employment outcomes.

Francesca Bastagli's main interests lie in the field of social policy, with a focus on the design and implementation of social protection policies, and their poverty, inequality and employment outcomes.
