About Our Research

We are a broad network of researchers organized into three working groups interested in incorporating issues related to care work and gender into the methods and tools used for formulating, implementing and analyzing macroeconomic and social policies. Specifically, our multi-disciplinary working groups are aiming to: bring gender dimensions into macroeconomic models, particularly in the case of care provisioning; gain a deeper understanding of the nature of care work by developing innovative measures and methodological approaches, and produce new research that illustrates the intersectionality of care provisioning, economic growth and distribution; and develop macromodels and analytic tools that integrate care work and other gendered behaviors to allow for more accurate policy analysis.
