IZA and Barnard College are organizing the 2nd IZA Annual Workshop on Gender and Family Economics. The workshop will create a stimulating environment that will enable participants to engage in discussion of and receive valuable feedback on pressing issues in gender- and family-related research and policy.

Keynote lectures will be delivered by Professor Catherine C. Eckel (Texas A&M University) and Professor Barbara Petrongolo (Queen Mary, University of London and IZA).

We invite contributions from both senior and junior researchers. Although submissions in all areas of gender and family economics are welcome, there is a particular interest this year in gender-related issues especially research papers that focus on:

  • Gender and economic outcomes
  • Gender and identity
  • Gender and decision making
  • Gender inequality in labor markets
  • Gender and health
  • Women’s economic, social, and political empowerment
Submission deadline: November 1, 2017
