Intensive Course and Self-Study Manual on Gender-Sensitive Macroeconomic Modeling for Policy Analysis

This Self-Study Manual contains 15 modules on Gender-Sensitive Macroeconomic Modeling for Policy Analysis. Each module contains resources and recorded lectures from the Intensive Virtual Course in Gender-Sensitive Macroeconomic Modeling for Policy Analysis held in Summer 2021. The Intensive Virtual Course was organized by the Care Work and the Economy Project at American University and the Levy Economics Institute of Bard College, made possible by the generous support of the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. 

The purpose of the course was to provide training in gender-sensitive economic analysis, with a focus on care and macroeconomic policy aspects. The course aims to enhance the capacity of economists - from academia, research institutions, international organizations and government ministries - in research and teaching of gender-sensitive economic analysis, through a better understanding the care economy and the formulation of gender-sensitive macroeconomic policies.
