About the Workshop
In 2022, the 5th Annual Workshop on Gender and Family Economics will be focused on family economics and centered around: "Families as an Insurance Mechanism".

The workshop will be held online. Usual paper presentations and discussions will be combined with a new format in which papers of junior researchers are discussed in small groups.

The workshop will enable participants to engage in discussions about pressing issues in research and policy around this year’s theme and receive valuable feedback.
Given the anticipated popularity of this workshop, not everyone's request to participate will be accomodated. In fairness, anyone accepted to the workshop, is expected to commit to participating for the full two days.

Researchers interested in participating should submit an extended abstract or a full paper by March 15, 2022 using the online application form.

Notifications will be sent by April 15, 2022.
