This doctoral thesis, ‘The Objective and Subjective Quality of Social Investment Interventions for Households with Children’, examines individual satisfaction with childcare quality through a social investment approach.  This research challenges the mainstream SI approach by adopting a bottom-up approach of subjective service user perspective to analyse childcare quality in the EU (27) and the UK. With six years of experience researching childcare, social investment, work-life balance, inequality and life-course, Ausra's expertise lies in analysing childcare, work-life balance issues, and gender inequality by applying a social investment (SI) framework.
