Giulia Lanfredi (she/her) is a research assistant at RAND Europe working in the area of home affairs and social policy. Her studies focused on feminist political economy, especially on the provision of paid and unpaid care in European welfare states as well as on a global scale.

Before joining RAND, Lanfredi worked as a trainee at the European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE) in the research and statistics team, and co-authored a few research reports in the ‘Women and the Economy’ area of the Beijing Platform for Action, and EIGE’s Gender Equality Index 2020 (with a thematic focus on digitalisation and the future of work). Prior to EIGE, she worked for a Kolkata-based NGO providing educational, financial and medical assistance to women and children living in vulnerable communities in rural parts of West Bengal (India). This work included visiting and monitoring field projects such as microfinance banks, village schools and medical clinics. She also volunteered for a London-based NGO where she conducted a small-scale study on the gendered impact of explosive violence in Europe, and helped to monitor civilian casualties of explosive weapons in Syria. Lanfredi also worked as an editor for an Italian blog dedicated to social justice, gender equality and LGBT+ rights for over 6 years, and interned in an editorial firm specialised in financial journalism.
