2021 IEB SUMMER WORKSHOPS: Workshop on Public Policies: Gender and Health (Virtual workshop)

Inicio: junio 01, 2021 Final: junio 02, 2021

Virtual workshop


The Workshop on Public Policies: Gender and Health will take place in Barcelona on June 1-2, 2021. The workshop aims at exploring the interactions between gender and health issues.


We invite researchers working on these or on closely related topics to submit their manuscripts. We welcome the submission of theoretical and empirical papers, as well as those focusing only on gender or health, although priority will be given to work that contributes to both areas of the workshop. Two invited plenary sessions will complement the contributed sessions.


The workshop will be online. If the situation with the Covid-19 allows it, we will switch to a mixed in-person/online workshop. We will inform the accepted authors about the final format to give enough time to plan the trip to Barcelona for those interested in attending in person. All those not willing to attend in person will present online.
