How gender affects patterns of asset ownership and control in Egypt
- Impact Area
A recent study conducted by ICARDA’s Gender Scientist Dr. Dina Najjar, published in Feminist Economics Journal, examines the gender dimensions of land and non-land assets ownership in Egypt’s Old and New Lands.
The study reveals that although rural women are often marginalized when it comes to land or non-land assets ownership, the situation in Egypt may not be as dire as often portrayed by large development organizations in their literature.
ICARDA would like to thank CGIAR Research Program on Policies, Institutions, and Markets (PIM) for making this research possible through funding.
