Lindsay Flynn is an Associate Professor of Political Science and Principal Investigator for the PROPEL project (2021-2025; FNR-ATTRACT grant 14345912). The PROPEL project (PRO-active Policymaking for Equal Lives) examines the links between governmental policy, housing markets, and inequality by examining the challenges current generations face in high-income OECD countries. The project is situated at the intersection of inequality studies and studies of the welfare state.
Lindsay’s work is published in West European Politics, Politics & Society, and Social Politics, among others. Her article on childcare markets and maternal employment (Journal of European Social Policy, 2017) was one of 15 chosen out of over 2,500 articles as an official nominee for the Rosabeth Moss Kanter Award for Excellence in Work-Family Research.
Lindsay completed her undergraduate studies at Albion College (Michigan, USA) and graduate studies at the University of Virginia. A poster from her dissertation (examining work-family reconciliation policies) won the APSA Best Poster in Public Policy award in 2010. Before beginning at the University of Luxembourg, Lindsay taught political science and public policy at Wheaton College (Massachusetts). While there, she co-chaired the Curriculum Implementation Team, a committee charged with implementing a new undergraduate curriculum designed for the rigors and demands of a 21st century labor market.
