NO SPACE FOR WORK (NSFW), a national project spearheaded by Zubaan, a New Delhi-based feminist research and publishing organization, examines the links between violence and the recent patterns of decreasing rates of women’s participation in the formal and informal sectors of the Indian economy.
This project aims to assess the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on national economies and determine the effectiveness of current and potential policy responses in 11 developing countries around the world.
This project will not only analyze how young people are affected by COVID-19, it will examine how they can be key actors in the response, mitigation, and evaluation efforts of pandemic policies and actions.
Central America’s Northern Triangle (Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador) is well known for its high rates of violence and poverty, correlated with high rates of migration under vulnerable conditions.
This project seeks to understand how governments and citizen groups have organized responses to the COVID-19 crisis, and the social, political, and institutional dynamics that shaped responses in Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Guatemala, and Mexico.
This collaborative project will contribute to policies and strategies to address the immediate and longer-term effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on economies, social cohesion, and governance in Benin, Burkina Faso, and South Africa.
The COVID-19 pandemic and confinement are causing severe disruption to labour markets and food security in Latin America, exacerbating structural labour market challenges such as informality, inequality, and low productivity.
This project is part of an initiative that will provide evidence and strengthen capacity for bridging the knowledge gap in responding to the growing COVID-19 health crisis both in the short term and in the longer term.
