08.10.2015 / Created by (EMWF)

This research study explores the perception of women's economic empowerment in Palestine, particularly in the West Bank. It mainly seeks to extract data on the key indicators of women's economic empowerment based on a UNDP definition from 2010. According to this agency, women's economic empowerment comprises several concepts: economic opportunity through promoting the spirit of entrepreneurship or improving access to finance; legal status and rights through improving access to property, inheritance and land rights; and participation in economic decision-making, for instance in decision-making bodies.
