13.11.2019 / Created by IEMed

This article provides an overview of women’s economic empowerment in the MENA region. It aims to contribute to available knowledge through: first, providing an overview of women’s economic empowerment in the region in selected labour markets; second, following the evolution of those indicators over time; and third, providing a guide to a regional strategy for women’s economic empowerment, by identifying specific areas where gender inequalities persist, and hence where policy interventions are needed.

This article is part of the IEMed Mediterranean Yearbook 2019.
