Essays in gender and development economics

Abstract:

This dissertation analyzes how social and behavioral frictions in decision-making contribute to gender inequality in developing economies. It studies factors that have received relatively little attention in economics – namely social norms, role models, and concerns about preserving identity – and examines their impact on behavior, including intimate partner violence (IPV). I use field and survey experiments in Rwanda and Nigeria to provide empirical evidence on these relationships.
