Trangressing economic boundaries: Gender, commodification and social change in Zanzibar
This project deals with economic engagement, commodification of household related activities and processes of social change. The motivation is to examine systems of redistribution and negotiation within households in societies where the dominant gender ideology places men as providers, and women as maintained.
Family, work and welfare: Economic perspectives
This project aims to study the effect of welfare society policies that are meant to redistribute toward families with dependent children or that have an impact on the paid work choice. The interest is in the optimal design of such policies, from the viewpoints of economic efficiency, distributive considerations and gender equality.
