See her detailed Specialist Profile.
Francie is Director of the Social Protection Programme of WIEGO, and a Senior Research Associate in the School of Built Environment and Development Studies at the University of KwaZulu-Natal in Durban, South Africa. She trained as a sociologist and community organizer, and developed an abiding interest in social policy and social security issues. She is interested in understanding the effects of different forms of social assistance on poor households, and especially their effects for women and children in rural and informal areas. More recently she has been working on the link between women's paid and unpaid care work, and also on occupational health and safety for informal workers. She has worked as a research and policy consultant for a wide range of international organizations, and also for local, provincial and national government in South Africa. She chaired the Lund Committee on Child and Family Support. Convened after the transition to democracy in 1994, this resulted in a new form of cash support to poor children.
