Core Conference 2020:

 

Gender differences are pervasive across all economic contexts. Wages and career paths differ strongly between men and women. Their choices and preferences differ, too. A large set of recent  studies has set out to explore the causes and consequences of such gender differences. What is the effect of institutions such as tax regimes and childcare facilities on the labor market outcomes of men and women? What roles do social norms and gender stereotypes play? How do choices and outcomes within the household interact with choices and outcomes in the market? What policies are effective in enhancing the professional success of women?

 

Three keynotes by leading international scholars will provide insights into these questions and give an overview of current research.  Raquel Fernandez (New York University) will present a macroeconomic perspective on gender issues, including cultural effects and gender norms. Muriel Niederle (Stanford University) is an expert on behavioral causes of gender differences and will analyze how institutional settings can moderate their effects. Manuel Bagues (Warwick) will discuss a body of work on the consequences of gender quotas for economic outcomes. A panel discussion with politicians, entrepreneurs, and researchers will ask what measures are effective in achieving gender equality.

The Annual Conference of the Verein fuer Socialpolitik consists of a core conference with invited lectures concerning “Gender Economics” and of an Open Meeting with mixed topics. Presentations and Organised Sessions for the Open Meeting may be submitted from all fields of economics.

 

The submissions are evaluated by anonymous referees and subsequently selected by the Programme Committee. The decision of acceptance may be expected by the end of May 2020. Membership in the Verein fuer Socialpolitik and acceptance of its Code of Ethics are required for presenting at the annual conference. After the acceptance of the submission, applications for membership can be made here.

 

With approval during the submission process, accepted contributions will be published in EconStor, the online publication database of the ZBW – Leibniz Information Center Economy which is a part of the collection of all VfS conference contributions. Further publication is not intended by the Verein fuer Socialpolitik.

EconStor (www.econstor.eu) is a disciplinary publication server for the distribution of economics research papers in Open Access. It is maintained by the ZBW - Leibniz Information Centre for Economics. Making your conference paper on EconStor as a pre-publication available, increases the visibility of your research (e.g. via RePEc) and does not conflict with the submission to a scholarly journal. If necessary, papers on EconStor can be withdrawn and deleted at any time. Further information here.
