Colombia CWW Results in "The Economics of Caring and Public Policy"

26 Nov 2016 - 11:15

Piedad Urdinola discussed results from the Colombia CWW research at a seminar entitled "The economics of caring and public policy" in Bogotá on 16 November 2016. In support of many of the ideas discussed in the seminar, Piedad provided evidence of the large part that caring plays in the lives of ordinary people and how, in the Colombian context, it is linked with gender differences in the educational system and labour market segregation.

The main goal of the seminar was to gather information from experts, policy makers and academics to develop a plan for a national policy on caring.
