Bio/Research

Geranda Notten is assistant professor at the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs (Canada). She specializes in poverty and social policy research and has been working on developed and developing countries including the European Union, United States, Russia and Congo Brazzaville. In her current research she studies children's living conditions in Germany, France, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. The project focuses on the breadth of deprivation: to what degree does a child simultaneously experience deprivations across domains of well-being, how strongly are these deprivation outcomes related to income poverty and how effective are social protection transfers in reaching deprived children and their families? This research contributes to knowledge relevant for the identification of vulnerable groups of children and their coverage by various social protection programs. It also informs on the appropriate way to define poverty for children and it tests poverty measures that take cumulative deprivations into account. Geranda has been a visiting researcher at CEPS/INSTEAD (Luxembourg), the Kennedy School of Government (United States) and at the Maastricht Graduate School of Governance (Netherlands). She further worked on consultancy projects for the World Bank, European Union and UNICEF on countries such as Mauritius, Congo Brazzaville and Russia. Geranda holds a PhD in economics from Maastricht University (Netherlands).
