Dr. Lucy Jordan (Assistant Professor, Department of Social Work and Social Administration, University of Hong Kong) works at the intersection of social policy and population studies. Her professional and research experience emphasizes market-state-civil society strategies to address social protection needs and vulnerabilities of families and youth. The overarching question driving Dr. Jordan’s scholarship and practice is to understand how government policies and practices influence and impact on intimate family life.
