Christina David's research interests relate to disability, human rights based approaches, and social support and care policy and practice. Christina's PhD thesis examines the extent to which individualised funding and support approaches can deliver on their human rights promises in relation to choice, control and self determination. This exploration of the space between policy and practice identifies the conditions in which rights are promoted or neglected, where and how opportunities and resources enable or limit choice, and where critical economic, social and cultural barriers are located.
In her role at the Centre for Applied Social Research (CASR) Christina works in the Social Support and Care stream as has been involved in research projects related to disability, aged care, and disadvantage.
