Roundtable Proposals

Pathways to Gender Equality: Economic Gender Analysis Addressing Current and Future Challenges

This conference, to be held on November 2 and 3, 2018, in Washington, DC, is funded with the generous support of the Open Society Foundation. Our objective is to bring together scholars and policy analysts who understand gender analysis to be central to solving the important economic issues we face –increasing inequality, global poverty, the increasing deficit of care. The conference seeks proposals for papers, panels of papers, round tables, and a poster session that:

·         demonstrate the centrality of gender analysis to key contemporary problems in macroeconomics, household, labor, and development economics;

·         contribute to the tools of gender analysis by deploying innovative theoretical frameworks, econometric methods, survey methods, and other data collection;

·         deepen our understanding of the policy implications of this research.

Preference will be given to proposals that encourage exchange between scholars, policy analysts, policymakers, and advocates. Papers should constitute new, cutting-edge work.

The roundtable sessions will consist of a four person panel. Each person will make a short presentation after which the audience and presenters will engage in an extensive discussion session. Preference will be given to roundtables which include a mix of academic and policy perspectives and presenters from different institutions.
