Course on Gender Economics. Master in Economics, FCE-UNLP.
Inés Berniell teaches this course every year in the Master in Economics at the FCE-UNLP. Gender Economics uses the theoretical framework and statistical tools of Economics to describe and understand the differences between men and women in key economic variables such as labor participation, wages, income, hours of work, occupation, poverty rates, leisure time, among other well-being measures. The course offers an overview of the current state of the literature on gender gaps, with a focus on the labor markets. In each class, there are deep discussions of the frontier research on the different dimensions of gender gaps and the factors that generate them, as well as about the empirical evidence on the effectiveness of several policies designed to reduce these gaps. The course emphasizes the interaction between economic theory and its empirical modeling.
