Labour Regulations and Anti-discrimination Legislation

How do they influence gender equality in employment?

This project reviews existing literature on the impact of labour regulations and anti-discrimination legislation on gender equality in employment in developing countries.

The objective is to draw lessons for effective gender-sensitive labour market reforms and to identify priorities for policy.

Research questions include: What are the labour market measures that are likely to be more successful for achieving gender equality? Under what circumstances do they work? What are the other conditions, and policies, that need to be in place for labour reforms to succeed?
