People at Laurier

Lea Caragata, Faculty of Social Work Lea Caragata teaches in the areas of policy and community development. Her research spans issues of marginalization and oppression including considerations of citizenship and the state, gendered precariousness, and the effects of globalization on marginalized peoples. She is the Principal Investigator on a SSHRC Community/University Research Alliance entitled “Lone Mother’s:Building Social Inclusion”. This five-year multi-site research uses a social exclusion lens to explore the experiences of Canadian lone mothers in the face of retrenching welfare systems and non-standard work.
