Lea Caragata

Wilfrid Laurier University
Professor & Associate Dean
I teach Social Policy and Community Development at Wilfrid Laurier University in Ontario, Canada. My recent research includes a multi-site interdisciplinary longitudinal study of single mothers in 3 Canadian cities examining the effects of labour market change and workfare programs on these families. Other research has focused on citizenship, social movements, gender, social exclusion and considerations of space and place. Before academe, I worked in government and the non-profit sector including more than 10 years as Executive Director of a social housing organization.
