The course will examine the topic of gender from a comparative perspective, encompassing both the political and economic spheres. Topics will include female representation in the private and public sectors, female leadership and the "gender gap", the effects of policies such as quotas, as well as the barriers preventing gender parity. The course literature will primarily focus on empirical research in the field of gender studies. Examples will come from various world regions and time periods in order to analyze similarities and differences across cases. There are no prerequisites for this course.
