Luann Good Gingrich is an Associate Professor in the School of Social Work and Scholar in Residence at the Centre for Refugee Studies at York University. Her research focuses on social exclusion/inclusion at the nexus of transnational migration, labour markets, social policy, and human services. She studies the dynamics of social exclusion for groups made differently marginal (including immigrants and refugees, low-value workers in Canada’s temporary visa programs, women migrating alone in Central America, and ethno-culturally distinct populations) toward informed policies and practices of social inclusion. Integrating theory development and empirical research, her work pays special attention to the function of extraordinarily uneven global systems in the ordinary and everyday realities of making a life “on the move”.

Good Gingrich is a member of Transnational Social Support, an international research network, and is on the editorial board for the international journals Transnational Social Review: A Social Work Journal and the International Journal of Migration and Border Studies.

  • The paradoxes of voluntary social exclusion, “choice”, and social inclusion in contexts of migratory livelihoods

Role: Principal Investigator

LONE Mothers: Building Social Inclusion

Description: 
Employing a social exclusion lens, this research is interrogating the meaning and implications of interrelated welfare policy and labour market changes facing lone parents in three large urbanized regions spanning the country (Vancouver, Toronto and St. John's). Extending relevant conceptual and theoretical perspectives, our aim is to make visible the multiple dimensions of individuals’ experiences of social exclusion (socio-political, economic, subjective, spatial) and bring into focus the relationships among these experiences, the structural and policy contexts that support them, and their implications for the public sphere.
