Australian Gender Economics Workshop 2022, hosted by the Women in Economics Network (WEN) and the Australian National University Virtual and in-person workshop at the Crawford School of Public Policy, Canberra, Australia, 10 - 11 February 2022.
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. The AGEW will include a program of research presentations and a policy symposium session. Submissions are currently open and close on 31 October 2021.
AGEW invites the submission of research papers from both junior and senior researchers on any topic related to gender economics. Both applied and theoretical papers that meet high standards of methodological rigour are invited. Papers should apply an economic framework and gender should be a core element of the analysis. Papers should also demonstrate real world relevance and applicability to addressing issues of social or economic concern.
To accommodate continued uncertainties resulting from the global pandemic, the entire workshop will be accessible virtually and in-person. For this reason, the workshop welcomes submissions from domestic and international authors, irrespective of their ability to travel to Canberra.
Full papers or extended abstracts (min. 1500 words) can be submitted to the AGEW2022 Scientific Committee. AGEW invites papers on the following themes and beyond:
• COVID-19 and its implications for gender equality
• Behavioural and experimental insights
• Gender norms
• Labour and workplace organisation
• Labour market participation
• Education and human capital
• Mental and physical health
• Conflict and domestic violence
• Household and interpersonal dynamics
• Macroeconomics and economic growth
• Economic development
• Poverty, inequality and disadvantage
• Housing, superannuation and retirement
• Tax and transfer policies
• Parental leave and childcare policies
• Evaluation of policy interventions
Presenters of any gender are welcome to the workshop. Gender economics does not necessarily entail an exclusive focus on women or exclusively on binary classifications of gender.
