Call for papers is now open for the next Australian Gender Economics Workshop (AGEW) to be held in Melbourne, Australia, on 13-15 February 2019.
The Women in Economics Network (WEN) is proud to be hosting AGEW2019 in partnership with RMIT University.
The aim of AGEW is to foster a community of economic researchers who can collectively contribute to the evidence base needed to guide the pursuit of more gender equitable outcomes in society. AGEW will include a program of research presentations, two highly esteemed keynote speakers, and a policy symposium which will draw together the insights and implications delivered by the research papers.
AGEW invites the submission of research papers on any topic on gender economics. Papers should apply an economic framework where gender is a core element of the analysis. Papers should also demonstrate real world relevance and applicability to addressing issues of social or economic concern.
The scope of topics can include (but is not limited to) labour and workplace organisation, behavioural insights, education and human capital, family and care responsibilities, household and interpersonal dynamics, mental and physical health and safety, economic growth, poverty and economic development, measures of inequality, housing, superannuation and retirement, taxation and transfer policy, and the evaluation of policy interventions. Both applied and theoretical papers are invited. Analytical policy papers that meet high standards of methodological rigour will also be considered.
Full papers or extended abstracts (minimum 1500 words) should be submitted to AGEW2019@rmit.edu.au. Submissions are now open and will close on Friday 31 August 2018.
AGEW will also offer a professional development program including a Gender Lensing Masterclass, and an Academic Career Development session for early- and mid-career researchers.
