Her address is part of the Transatlantic Lecture Series at Brigham Young University's David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies.

Faggio's current research covers tax incentives and female labor-market participation across Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development countries; wage inequality and firm productivity dispersion in the UK and Norway; and the impact of UK disability reforms on labor participation.
