Kabeer, N. Women’s economic empowerment and inclusive growth: Labour markets and enterprise development, London, SOAS, 2012. This paper was commissioned by DFID and IDRC with a view to locating the growing concern with women’s economic empowerment within its growth research programmes. Inclusive growth, as defined by IDRC, is growth which ensures opportunities for all sections of the population, with a special emphasis on the poor, particularly women and young people, who are most likely to be marginalised. Central to both IDRC’s and DFID’s agenda is a concern with decent jobs and the promotion of small and medium enterprise.
