A committment by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) of Canada

The International Development Research Centre (IDRC) of Canada recently commissioned me to review some empirical research they have funded on the care economy in developing countries.

It was exciting to wade into field studies attentive to qualitative as well as quantitative indicators, with important policy implications.

Many of the studies have experimental designs (such as examining the impact of child care vouchers on women’s employment).

Check it out: the report is entitled Developing Care.
