Zuzanna Balabuch

Originally from Poland, Zuzanna is a MSc candidate in Comparative Social Policy and a member of Regent’s Park College. Before joining DSPI, she graduated from the London School of Economics and Political Science with a BSc in Social Anthropology. Her interest in social policy stems from her undergraduate studies on the unforeseen intersections between policy, agency and culture, along with the law’s profound impact on communities and ordinary lives.

During her time at Oxford, she hopes to compliment that background with a deeper understanding of the principles, concerns and operation of the welfare state, as well as a wider methodological expertise.

Zuzanna is particularly passionate about gender inequalities and politics of social policy, and is excited to investigate those issues within the interdisciplinary framework of both the department and the discipline at large.
