Theme 2 Workshop 2020

STEG Theme workshop series 2020

at 14:00 BST, London

The STEG programme is structured around six themes. In August and September 2020, the six themes held online workshops. These workshops are a way of increasing the visibility of STEG within the research community and will play a role in helping to share knowledge of the current research frontier and in identifying open research questions.

The Theme 2 workshop discussed the linkages between home production, market work, and structural transformation in the development process. We will have an emphasis on papers that address structural change in the labour market in developing countries or in developed countries in historical perspectives, links between home and market work, and trends in female labour force participation over the development process.
