Researchers measure the gender impact of poverty alleviation interventions in rural India and Bangladesh, including how impact has been mediated where cultural attitudes affect women's work and the affect of interventions.

This project seeks to understand the gender dynamics of the labour market in the context of Bangladesh. Labour markets are recognised as key institutional routes through which the benefits of growth are distributed across populations. Moreover, empirical research suggests that women’s access to labour market opportunities, particularly those which offer predictable incomes and ‘decent’ working conditions, can strengthen their voice and agency within the family and in the wider community.
