GLOBAL REACH

Care Work and the Economy is currently working to better understand and measure care work in South Korea, and develop country-specific tools that model gendered behavior both in market and non-market sectors (including care sectors) to fully capture gendered distributional effects of policies.

To ensure that the research methodologies, approaches, and tools developed in the project are sustained and built on and to promote the use of gender-aware data and analytical tools in developing countries, Care Work and the Economy is:

1) Developing a week-long training course in 2020 for government officials, statisticians, and researchers from developing countries to enhance their skills in estimating their care economies and developing gender-sensitive macroeconomic models for policy analysis in their own countries;

2) Actively engaging research partners in developing countries to explore collaborative partnerships to adapt and contextualize our research methods and approaches to replicate our work in their own country.
