Prof.Pritam Singh and Nadia Singh, a PhD student, of the Department of Accounting, Finance and Economics presented the inaugural address at the Oxford Sikh Society conference on Saturday, October 21 at St Antony’s College, University of Oxford. The conference was centred on the theme of Sikhism and Gender. The inaugural address was titled the “Lesser Child: An Evaluation of the discrimination against the girl child at the household level in Punjab.” The paper focussed on exploring the complex inter linkages between sex ratios and indicators of child care, nutrition and wellbeing at the household level. The paper also critically evaluated conditional cash transfer schemes as a means for ensuring better care and nourishment for girl children belonging to resource poor families. The inaugural address was based on a recent peer reviewed research paper published by the authors in the Journal of Punjab Studies.
