Working Papers Series 2021-22
First cycle of the working paper series in 2021-2022
May 6, 2022, 9-11AM ET, Work in Progress Seminar with Anju Mary Paul
Please join the Revaluing Care in the Global Economy for a work-in-progress seminar with Anju Mary Paul, the lead author of the paper, “The Policy Impact of Women’s Political Voice: A Comparison of 26 Countries’ Care Policies.” Professor Paul, an Associate Professor of Sociology at Yale-NUS College, has over the past several years developed the Global Care Policy Index to gauge how well countries uphold policies supporting paid and unpaid carework. Her paper for this seminar, coauthored with Jiang Haolie (Yale-NUS) and Cynthia Chen (National University of Singapore) examines whether women’s political representation affects policies supporting caregiving. Richard Itaman (Jesus College, Cambridge) and Joya Misra (UMass Amherst) will lead off commentary and discussion of this interesting paper. This is a virtual event, since Prof. Paul is participating from Singapore. You will receive a copy of the paper once you have registered.
