How to measure quality of employment?

Kirsten Sehnbruch is a British Academy Global Professor and a Distinguished Policy Fellow at the International Inequalities Institute at the London School of Economics and Political Science.
Kirsten was awarded a British Academy Global Professorship to study the conceptualization and the measurement of the quality of employment in developing countries from the perspective of the capability approach. From a theoretical perspective, she examines employment as a missing dimension of the capability approach; empirically, she has established a summary indicator of job quality for 13 Latin American countries, which will be extended to other regions of the Global South going forwards. Her work informs social, labour, and development policy more broadly as it allows for resources to be targeted at the most vulnerable workers in a labour market.
