These are projects at the Indian Statistical Institute being led by Prof. Farzana Afridi, and supported by IWWAGE. The overarching objective is to rigorously analyse the constraints that women face in engaging in remunerative economic activities, and suggest new policy measures, while also evaluating existing programmes that aim at unleashing women’s economic potential fully in India.
IWWAGE aims to build on existing research and generate new evidence to inform and facilitate the agenda of women’s economic empowerment.
