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.
