Paper Submission Deadline: December 2, 2022

We invite submissions from academic researchers of original rigorous empirical and/or theoretical papers in economics or related fields (e.g., political science) that can improve the understanding of gender-sensitive responses to Covid-19 and future shocks in Asia and the Pacific.

Topics relevant to the theme include, but are not limited to, the following:

  1. Labor market dropout and re-entry through the pandemic and other shocks
  2. Changes in job quality/dimensions, including transitions across informal and formal employment, etc.
  3. Norms around women and work, and discrimination
  4. Labor market linkages – access to information, markets, etc., and gender gaps in economic outcomes
  5. Remote data collection through the pandemic and other shocks, and consequences for what we understand from the data
  6. Policy responses to economic changes and relevance to women's economic opportunities and welfare through the pandemic and future shocks

Interested authors must register and submit an original, as-yet-published paper by December 2, 2022 here.  The paper should include authors’ affiliations and contact information.  Submissions will be evaluated in terms of originality, analytical rigor, and policy relevance to the Asian and/or Pacific context.  Authors of accepted papers will be contacted by late December 2022.
