Training for the month of February, 2017
To develop an understanding of social protection and livelihood security for informal sector workers.
The course aims to provide a structural analysis of the complex relationships between informality, gendered relations of power and poverty. It also provides researchers with an enhanced understanding of qualitative and quantitative methods on gender, poverty and the informal economy. This course will be an opportunity to discuss and debate on the ongoing issues in conceptualizing and measuring poverty, women empowerment and gender.
The aim of the programme is to familiarize the participants with the social protection programmes and to develop techniques and strategies for initiating micro-level livelihood programmes.
The course provides an opportunity to the participants to go through a rigorous and interactive exercise on understanding various quantitative methods and tools in labour research. It aims at capacity building of young researchers in the area of quantitative research, giving special focus on labour studies.
