Janneke Pieters

Welcome to my website

I am an Associate Professor in the Development Economics Group at Wageningen University, Research Fellow at the Institute of Labor Economics (IZA), and Non-Resident Senior Research Fellow at UNU-WIDER.

My research interests are primarily in the fields of labor economics and development economics, with a focus on labor markets and gender inequality. I'm interested in the determinants and consequences of women's labor market outcomes in low- and middle-income countries. For a list of published papers, working papers, and work in progress, please see my Research page.

I co-lead the project "The dynamics of women’s work: routes to economic and social empowerment" at UNU-WIDER, a result of which is this special section on women's work in World Development. And I am an associate editor for Feminist Economics.

At Wageningen University I teach BSc and MSc courses on Trade & Development, Development Economics, and Intermediate Microeconomics. I currently supervise 4 PhD students who work on research related to inequality, labor markets, and agricultural development. I am also a member and co-chair of the Wageningen Young Academy.
