This grant would support research to understand the trends and differences in women’s productivity and empowerment in Ghana, and the consequences of empowerment on the welfare of women and their children. The proposed research will analyze trends in women’s paid employment, self-employment, and home production using data from the Ghana Panel Survey. It will examine factors that impact women’s time allocation and productivity, such as local crop and industrial composition, women’s control of land and other assets, and education. Developing this framework for women’s economic productivity will provide a means to compare how alternative policies can facilitate women’s empowerment.

Grants to this Grantee
for the Yale Center for the Study of Globalization
The Yale Center for the Study of Globalization is a focal point for raising questions, triggering analysis and debate, and connecting policy actors concerned with issues such as global development, international trade, financial globalization, global public goods, and global governance. One of the Center’s international collaborations, for example, involves providing ongoing advisory support for the Natural Resource Charter, a set of principles on how best to harness the opportunities for development generated by extractive resource revenues. During this final phase of program support from the Foundation, the Center will seek to diversify funding so that it may continue its public programs—including lectures, workshops, and conferences—and expand the readership of its online magazine YaleGlobal.
for The Culture and Civilization of China, a multi-volume series of art books jointly published by Yale University Press and the Beijing-based China International Publishing Group
