• Symposium „Spatial Mobility, Families and Gender Inequality in the Labour Market“, 28th-29th March 2017 in Bremen (Germany)

Gender inequalities permeate household relocation and mobility decisions and outcomes. Compared to men, women cover shorter commuting distances, are less likely to lead long-distance household relocations for a job, and their careers benefit little when this happens.

Together with Johannes Huinink and Tim Schröder, I am organizing a one-and-half day symposium that addresses relevant underresearched dimensions of the association between the spatial mobility of families and gender-based labour market inequality. The symposium program consists of twelve presentations delivered by authoritative figures in the field. You can find the symposium program here.

The one-and-half day symposium will be held at the Teerhof Guesthouse – University of Bremen (Germany) on the 28th-29th March 2017. The event is open to the public and there are no fees associated with the participation, however seats are limited. Advance registration is requested.
