The workshop focuses on theoretical and empirical research on gender in the labour market. This includes: analysis of gender differences in pre-market human capital, experience, seniority, occupations, earnings, wealth, training and mobility; changing gender roles in changing economies, theories of discrimination; the family as an economic unit; the role of marriage markets; time allocation; policies affecting paid work and family; the impact of welfare reform on single mothers; gender differences in different countries. We would also welcome any papers in other areas looking at gender related questions.
