Gender in Input-Output Analysis

Long-term economic growth is the result of a complex interplay of technological factors, structural change, consumption patterns, and gains in productivity and competitiveness. In this context, a change in any of the above-mentioned factors has different impacts in women and men and in the so-called gender gaps, with no identical effects in all economies and countries.

Input-output analyses have an important potential to be implemented and be able to analyse and explain some structural determinants of gender differentials that have been identified in the literature. The development of Global Value Chains, for instance, brings a new perspective to the analysis. It allows us to revisit old research questions related to the factors that promote or dampen employment and payment gender gaps, vertical and horizontal segregation, polarisation, etc.

This Special Issue aims at filling this knowledge gap with works that analyse different aspects of gender and economics applying input-output methodology. Insights on a broad spectrum of themes are welcomed, including, but not restricted to:

  • Inclusion of the gender factor in social footprints
  • Development of gender-aware general equilibrium models to evaluate the impact of different gender policies
  • Role of women in the economic growth and structural change of developed and developing countries
  • Efforts to value and include unpaid and care work in multisectoral models
  • Approximations to the economic impact of gender violence,
  • Effects on employment and payment gender gaps of different international experiences of trade liberalisation, etc...

Multidisciplinary contributions on the above and related topics are invited. Contributions may be based on theoretical analyses, empirical investigations, comparative or in-depth studies.
