This year's annual conference of the Verein für Socialpolitik is entitled Gender Economics - Gender Studies in Economic Sciences.
This is a topic that reminds many people of the discussion about the women's quota in Dax boards or unequal income relations between women and men, which are brought to awareness with the annual Equal Pay Day.
But there are many other aspects, such as factors influencing the choice of career or why women are less represented in certain areas of activity.
Incidentally, gender research is often, but not only, concerned with equal rights for women. But Gender Economics is in principle gender neutral.
With the "Spotlight on current issues in economics" we invite you to get insights into the latests findings in economic research through lists of references and online research papers held and archived by the ZBW.Users get detailed analysis and valuable facts about economic developments.
