The project offers an opportunity to join a team of experts in the field of gender, work and regulation focussing on the role of regulation in the informalisation of women's employment. This PhD opportunity will be attractive to a scholar with an interest in systemic gendered divisions of labour and relations of power in the changing contexts of contemporary work and employment. It will contribute to a broad research programme examining the interconnections between paid work and the unpaid labour of social reproduction and household provisioning. This programme includes research in both developed and emerging economies focussing on the implications for gender equality of the contemporary organisation and governance of work. A key theme in this work concerns the informalisaiton of women’s employment. The scholarship is part of the Gender, Work and Regulation research cluster developed by Sara Charlesworth, Fiona Macdonald and Annie Delaney in the School of Management.
