Determinants and Forecasting of Female Labour Force Participation Rate in India: Testing of Feminization U hypothesis
(kassel university press, 2020-06)
Greater involvement of women within the labour force has economic and social impact. The Female Labour Force Participation Rate (FLFPR) for India remains appallingly low at around 27%, while the male labour force participation rate has been 79.9%. In India, during 1990–2016, the FLFPR (% of female population age 15+) showed a declining trend. In this paper, the determinants of FLFPR for India have been estimated using regression analysis for the time period 1990–2016. Data on all the relevant variables have ...

Die Welt in Karten. Umbrüche und Kontinuitäten im Mittelalter

Following introductory thoughts on methodological issues, the text focuses on three different types of maps, all of which represent the world in its entirety: schematic maps, world maps and nautical charts. Within different texts, as independent artifacts or as atlases, these maps were employed for diverse purposes, such as the representation of fundamental principles, of encyclopaedic ...
Ein Blick aus dem Autofenster hat mir im Winter eine Landschaft gezeigt, die ich in den anderen Jahreszeiten so noch nie wahrgenommen hatte. Dieser Blick hat nur einige Sekunden gedauert, aber ausgereicht, meine Neugier zu wecken und interdisziplinär im Schnittfeld von Architektur und Bildung, mit kunstwissenschaftlicher Architekturgeschichte zur Analyse, zu forschen. Mit meinen Bildungsspaziergängen möchte ich Entdecken und folglich das Entdeckte sichtbar machen, um die Ideengeschichte der jeweilige Gesellschaftsform, ...

Despite hazardous working conditions in agriculture, unfortunately, OSH issues in agriculture are frequently ignored. This volume’s contributions from Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Ghana, India, Nicaragua, and Pakistan as well as from various disciplines highlight - the prevalent patriarchal norms and practices which expose women to more health risks; - the lack of training and education which leave smallholders and ...
