Women in different countries face different challenges in the labour market due to historical, institutional, and cultural specificities. For this reason, policies which were successful in improving gender equality in one country might not bring the desired outcomes in another country. To tailor labour market policies, it is important to gain an accurate picture of how the historical, institutional, and cultural characteristics impact the effectiveness of various policies aimed at decreasing gender inequalities. With this call for papers, we invite research which addresses the situation of women in the labour market of different countries, paying special attention to the factors which influence women’s employment, occupation, and earnings. We welcome empirical research addressing any aspect of these relationships that contributes to our knowledge of these phenomena and has relevant implications for regional policymaking. Single country as well as comparative studies are welcome with a special focus on Central and Eastern European countries, which display growing heterogeneity in women’s performance in the labour market and which are still poorly understood.
