ESB 4767S: Women in economics

Female staff and female professors have been, and still are, very much underrepresented at economics faculties in the Netherlands. In our first ESB-dossier in English, 23 authors provide analysis and recommendations in order to improve the representation of women. With, among others, a roundtable discussion between young academics, an interview with Siv Gustafsson, a survey among economics faculties by Janneke Plantenga, columns by Esther-Mirjam Sent and Mirjam van Praag, and much more.

Would you like to receive a paper copy of the dossier? Please contact us.

This dossier was composed by the ESB editors and made possible by financial support from the Dutch economics and business faculties.
