Australian Gender Economics Workshop 2020

Registrations are now open for the third edition of the Australian Gender Economics Workshop (AGEW), which will take place in Brisbane at the Queensland University of Technology on 5-7 February 2020.

The aim of AGEW is to foster a community of economic researchers who can collectively contribute to the evidence base needed to guide the pursuit of more gender equitable outcomes in society. AGEW will include a program of research presentations and posters and a policy symposium session. We are glad to announce Professor Shoshana Grossbard and Professor Victor Lavy will be our two international keynote speakers while Professor Gigi Foster will be our Australia-based keynote speaker. Professor Grossbard will also be teaching a Course on Household Economics, Domestic Violence, and the Law on 3-4 February 2020.

Papers and extended abstract submissions are now closed.
