View Full Event Description

A lecture by Dr. Carmen Diana Deere, Distinguished Professor of Latin American Studies and Food & Resource Economics at the University of Florida,
Gender, Asset Accumulation and Wealth in Ecuador: Implications for Women’s Bargaining Power

The Department of Economics, the Center for Inter-American Policy (CIPR), and the Stone Center for Latin American Studies invite you to a talk by Dr. Carmen Diana Deere.

Based on her path-breaking research in Ecuador, Professor Deere will discuss her findings on the association between women's share of wealth and lower incidence of domestic violence and greater egalitarian household decision-making.

Dr. Diana Deere Bio:
Dr. Carmen Diana Deereis Distinguished Professor of Latin American Studies and Food & Resource Economics at the University of Florida. She holds a Ph.D. in Agricultural Economics from the University of California, Berkeley, and a M.A. in Development Studies from The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy. Deere was Director of the UF Center for Latin American Studies from 2004 to 2009, and previously was Director of the Center for Latin American, Caribbean and Latino Studies at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, where she was Professor of Economics. She is a Past President of the Latin American Studies Association (LASA) and of the New England Council of Latin American Studies (NECLAS). Deere is the co-author of Empowering Women: Land and Property Rights in Latin America (University of Pittsburgh Press, 2001), winner of LASA's Bryce Wood Book Award, as well as several other books. Among her co-edited volumes are two special issues of Feminist Economics, on Women and the Distribution of Wealth (2006) and on Gender and International Migration (2012). During 2009-2010 she was a Visiting Scholar at FLACSO-Ecuador, directing the UF-FLACSO study on Gender, Poverty and Assets, which included a 3,000 household survey on asset ownership in rural and urban areas. This project is part of a broader comparative study on the gender asset and wealth gaps which includes Ghana and India, a study initially funded by the Dutch Foreign Ministry's MDG3 Fund and currently by UNWomen. Deere's current research is on how gender inequality in asset ownership affects household outcomes such as decision-making and intimate partner violence. She is also conducting research on the factors that shape women's ability to accumulate assets, including property regimes and the role of remittances, savings and access to credit.

The talk is free and open to the public.
