Sociology of Development Policy Brief: “Why is Women’s Labor Force Participation So Low in the Middle East and North Africa?”

A new Sociology of Development Policy Brief is out! Volume 5, Issue 5 (2020) is: “Why is Women’s Labor Force Participation so Low in the Middle East and North Africa?” by Valentine M. Moghadam (Northeastern University)

Here is the fifth of the 2020 series of Policy Briefs from the Sociology of Development section of ASA.

The brief is titled: “Why is Women’s Labor Force Participation so Low in the Middle East and North Africa?”, and is by Valentine M. Moghadam  (2020, vol 5, iss. 5)

As usual, I welcome expressions of interest to contribute. While I am open to any ideas you have, your pitch should ideally include a reference to something you have published on the subject, so that we can assume a base level of peer reviewing of the material. There should also be some clear policy implications arising from the piece.
