Ms. Adrienn Gyory
Adrienn is a Social Policy Expert advancing interdisciplinary research on social inclusion and immigration. She has more than four years of experience in comparative policy analysis in relation to family, education and labour market policies and she recently finished her PhD studies in Social Policy at the University of Kent. Her doctoral research employed a novel, deliberative method to analyse public attitudes to the inclusion of immigrants in the welfare state in Norway and in the United Kingdom disentangling the conditions of developing more inclusive welfare states. At Capacity Adrienn is committed to foster social inclusion through the means of supporting entrepreneurship aspirations of people with refugee and migrant background as well as by designing the ACCESS – Labour Market Integration Programme. In parallel with her work at Capacity, she continues her research on the relation between democracy and welfare states examining social policy reforms under democratic backsliding.
