Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2018).
Interests: Gender and macroeconomics, gender and trade, gender and poverty, gender and fiscal policy
Gender is being increasingly recognized as an analytical category in macroeconomics and macroeconomic policy analyses. Gender inequalities impact macroeconomic performance and macroeconomic policy outcomes. Earlier policies for this research focused on the structural adjustment and macroeconomic stabilization in developing economies. More recently, austerity policies put into place in a number of advanced capitalist economies has spurred interest and research in gender and macroeconomics in the context of such economies.
Research on gender and macroeconomics (as well as international trade and finance) has spanned: (a) macroeconomic modelling with gender; (b) empirical studies devoted to gender inequalities and growth and development; (c) research on gender-bias in macroeconomic policies; (d) policy simulations for gender-equitable macroeconomic policy formulation. Many researchers working on gender and macroeconomics have expanded the study of macroeconomics to include the interlinkages between paid work and unpaid care and domestic work, and the macroeconomic implications of these interlinkages.
This Special Issue will be devoted to furthering research in modelling, empirical and policy work, including policy simulations. Papers may include, but are not restricted to, studies on gender inequalities and growth and development; growth and gender wage gaps; gender and economic crises; gender-bias in fiscal policies, gender responsive budgeting (GRB), monetary policy and gender inequalities, the impact of gender wage gaps on international trade performance; the impact of trade performance on gender wage gaps and gendered employment patterns; unpaid–paid work connections in macroeconomic analysis; time poverty; gendered analyses of employment, unemployment and under-employment; social infrastructure of care and the care economy; gendered analyses of poverty and anti-poverty policies; technical change, gender inequalities and macroeconomic outcomes; gender-aware macroeconomic policy simulations; gender and social protection policies.
