The Australian National University (ANU) and the Women in Economics Network (WEN) invite you to the 5th annual Australian Gender Economics Workshop (AGEW2022). The workshop will be held in a hybrid, virtual and in-person format, at the Crawford School of Public Policy, at the ANU on the 10 – 11 February 2022. The AGEW2022 will feature keynote speeches from two distinguished academics, Professor Guyonne Kalb (University of Melbourne) and Professor Núria Rodríguez-Planas (City University of New York).

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.

Submissions are currently open and will close on Sunday 31 October 2021.

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, here.

We invite 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.
