Gendered Impacts of Globalization: Employment & Social Protection

A paper entitled “Gendered Impacts of Globalization: Employment & Social Protection” has been published by United Nations – Research Institute for Social Development.
It reviews evidence on how key aspects of globalization processes have impacted the real economy, in terms of employment and social conditions of work for women and men across a wide range of countries.

This paper was commissioned by the UK Department for International Development (Dfid) as an independent piece of research with the aim of feeding into the 2012 World Development Report on gender equality, and informing Dfid’s own programming.
