2021 Australian Gender Economics Workshop

The 2021 Australian Gender Economics Workshop, hosted by the Women in Economics Network will be held virtually from Monday the 8th – Tuesday 9th February 2021. 
The aim of AGEW is to foster a community of economic researchers who can collectively contribute to the evidence base needed to guide the pursuit of more gender equitable outcomes in society. AGEW2021 will include a program of research presentations, keynote speakers and a policy symposium session which will draw together insights, implications and solutions delivered by the research papers.  

AGEW invites the submission of research papers on any topic of gender economics. Papers should apply an economic framework, and gender should be a core element of the analysis. Papers should also demonstrate real world relevance and applicability to addressing issues of social or economic concern. Presenters of any gender are all equally very welcome to our workshop. 

Inviting papers on the following themes and beyond:

  • COVID-19 and implications for gender equity
  • Behavioural and Experimental Insights
  • Labour and Workplace Organisation
  • Education and Human Capital
  • Household and Interpersonal Dynamics
  • Mental and Physical Health and Safety
  • Macroeconomics and Economic growth 
  • Economic Development
  • Poverty, Inequality and Disadvantage
  • Housing, Superannuation and Retirement
  • Tax and Transfer Policy
  • Evaluation of policy interventions 


Both applied and theoretical papers are invited. Analytical policy papers that meet high standards of methodological rigour will also be considered. Gender economics does not necessarily entail a focus only on women or only on binary classifications of gender. 

Submissions are currently open and will close on Sunday 1 November 2020.

Full papers or extended abstracts (min. 1500 words) can be submitted to the AGEW2021 Scientific Committee Co-Chairs Alfredo Paloyo and Silvia Mendolia by emailing agew2021@paloyo.net
