Resources, chance and social recognition are distributed inequally along the classification of gender. Researching this inequality has been one of the main focuses of L&R Social Research since the institute was founded in the 1990s. Gender mainstreaming, basic and applied science on gender topics and critical men’s studies are just some of the aspects addressed.

L&R has specialised in research projects addressing the intersection of gender and labour. Some examples of research fields in this area are listed here:

  • gender pay gap and gender time gap
  • inequal distribution of wage- and reproduction labour
  • discrimination in the workplace
  • horizontal and vertical segregation of labour markets
  • outcomes of digitalisation processes for women and men

The practical relevance of projects within this area is essential to implement gender-sensitive change. In addition to research activities, concrete development and consulting projects are also carried out.
