Faculty note: Prof. Huh on gender, development issues

This happened in July but worth mentioning here, today: Assistant Prof. Yunsun Huh, a specialist in economics and faculty member in the Democracy and Justice Studies and Women’s and Gender Studies academic units, led a seminar at the Korean Women’s Development Institute in Seoul. The seminar’s title was “Gender and Capabilities.” Huh introduced concepts of her primary research about the effect of home-country gender status on the labor-market success of immigrants, and explored issues related to labor supply and self-selection of immigrants. She also took part in panel discussions regarding women’s development in Korea, current status of immigrants and their impact on the labor market in Korea, and global public policy with respect to immigration.
