Abstract

This discussion paper provides an overview of ILO research on women, gender and the informal economy which was undertaken during the last two decades. It examines methodological and analytical frameworks used in various studies, identifies research gaps and proposes directions for future work. It ultimately aims to enhance ILO’s work in developing consistent, cohere nt and coordinated policy advice to constituents across the four pillars of the ILO Decent Work Agenda : standards and fundamental principles and rights at work, employment, social protection and social dialogue.
