The proposed program of research and policy engagement would examine when, how, and why gender inequalities are produced, reproduced, or challenged in the lives of 2,000 individuals in Ethiopia, India, Peru, and Vietnam. The research would be built into the Young Lives longitudinal study, housed at Oxford University, which has tracked 12,000 children and families since 2000; the oldest children are now about eighteen years old. The proposed research would trace gender development from early childhood through transitions to adulthood, as these young adults navigate work, marriage, education, and parenthood. Longitudinal data will be mined, recent survey data analyzed, and new, gender-focused qualitative work carried out in Ethiopia and India.

for Institute for New Economic Thinking to create and disseminate compelling research-based content
The Institute for New Economic Thinking at the Oxford Martin School (INET Oxford) was founded in 2012 to develop alternatives to neoliberal economic thinking and apply new ideas and methods to major societal challenges, including economic inequality, climate change, technological innovation, and the role of the financial system. The institute’s 98 scholars, drawn from a variety of disciplines, have produced a substantial body of academic output, but needs to do more to "translate" that output to have an impact on policy and societal debates. The institute is requesting a grant to hire a communications officer to work with its scholars to create and disseminate compelling research-based content. The successful candidate will have strong skills in journalism and social media, a strong network in key communications channels, and will work closely with counterparts across the "Beyond Neoliberalism" community.
