A Special Issue on Inequality, Development, and Growth Guest Editors GŁnseli Berik, Yana van der Meulen Rodgers, and Stephanie Seguino Feminist Economics invites submissions of papers for a special issue "Inequality, Development, and Growth." We encourage scholars in all disciplines to consider submitting abstracts for papers by October 1, 2006. If the abstract is accepted, the completed manuscript is due April 15, 2007. Along with increasing global economic integration and market liberalization over the last few decades, inter-group inequality has expanded both within and between countries. In a number of developing countries, persistent wage gaps have accompanied rapid growth. In industrial countries, on the other hand, improvement in gender wage gaps is associated with rising class, race, and ethnic inequalities. Although nation-states have attempted to avert rising inequality through a variety of policies (e.g. labor market, social, monetary, fiscal, and industrial policies), market liberalization has impaired the success of these policies in reducing inequality. Feminist literature has established that macroeconomic policies have gendered effects; however, further evidence is necessary to understand the connections between inter-group inequalities related to gender, class, and ethnicity and macroeconomic outcomes, including employment, ! output, growth, and development. The integration of gender into macroeconomic theory and efforts to develop more gender equitable macroeconomic policy recommendations will require more detailed attention to these critical issues. This special issue will provide a forum for analyzing inequality, redistribution, and growth in developing, industrial, and transitioning countries. Both theoretical and empirical contributions are encouraged, as well as discussions of the policy implications of the research findings. Besides statistical analysis, the guest editors encourage a diverse range of research methods and analyses. Possible paper topics include: The effects of globalization on gender inequality and its linkages to inequalities by class and ethnicity Mechanisms and state policies that increase inequality (e.g. fiscal conservatism, generation of oversupply of labor, erosion of labor market regulations) Effects of gender inequality (well-being, income) on macroeconomic outcomes Effects of macroeconomic policy on unpaid labor Central banks, monetary policy, and gender Gender inequality and social exclusion Measurement of inequality in well-being (e.g. health, education) Functionings, capabilities, and the quality of life Redistributive policies, development, and growth Equal employment opportunity policies, family friendly policies, social safety nets, and macroeconomic policies Social insurance and gender inequality Local and global responses to inequality Please direct queries and abstracts (500 words maximum) to Guest Editors GŁnseli Berik, Yana van der Meulen Rodgers , and Stephanie Seguino . Final papers (after approval of abstracts) should be submitted to Feminist Economics through the submissions website mc.manuscriptcentral.com/rfec. Questions about these procedures may be sent to email@example.com, +1 713.348-4083 (phone) or +1 713.348.5495 (fax).
