IZA and Universidad Adolfo Ibañez are organizing the 3rd IZA Annual Workshop on Gender and Family Economics.

  • Evaluation of policies with respect to children
  • Consequences of early social and economic disadvantages
  • Family formation and dynamics and implications on children
  • Women’s economic, social, and political empowerment
