Dr Tim Goedemé
Senior Research Officer
Senior Research Officer, Department of Social Policy and Intervention
Tim Goedemé is Senior Research Officer working on INET’s Employment, Equity and Growth Programme and Research Coordinator at the Herman Deleeck Centre for Social Policy (University of Antwerp), where he directs research on poverty and social protection. He is a sociologist by training, with a doctorate from the University of Antwerp (2012). His main research interests include poverty, inequality and social policy, and, more recently, the distributive effects of environmental policies. Current research focuses on strategies to reduce inequality, the measurement of poverty, reference budgets, the adequacy of minimum income policies, the non-take-up of social benefits and the identification of eco-social policies that jointly reduce inequality and have beneficial environmental effects. He has a strong methodological background, and is expert member of the network for the analysis of the EU Survey on Income and Living Conditions (EU-SILC) and the European Social Survey’s Sampling and Weighting Expert Panel. In addition, until recently he was country team leader of the Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirment in Europe for Flanders - Belgium (2016-2018). His most recent book (published by Oxford University Press) is ‘Decent incomes for all. Improving policies in Europe’, co-edited with Bea Cantillon and John Hills.
