Employment and labour markets

Having introduced unpaid work as a significant component of time and resource allocation in economic  activity, this module introduces a gender analysis of employment and labour markets in the context of Asia and the Pacific, including labour supply issues and the segmented structure of employment, to create a fuller picture of time and resource allocation. Definitions of informal employment are stressed, given its importance in most countries in Asia and the Pacific. The module includes an employment mapping exercise and discusses employment policies from a gendered perspective.
