Tarun Jain: Reshaping Adolescents’ Gender Attitudes
This lecture is a part of the Center for South Asia’s 2022 Fall Lecture Series.
Gender inequality exists in every society, but it is especially acute in many developing countries. This project by Dr. Tarun Jain, evaluates an NGO-lead intervention in Haryana, India that engaged adolescent girls and boys in classroom discussions about gender equality for two years, aiming to reduce their support for societal norms that restrict women’s and girls’ opportunities.
Tarun Jain is an Associate Professor of Economics at the Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad, and serves as an Associate Editor at Economic Modelling. His research focuses on understanding causes and consequences of human capital formation (for instance, with education and health), especially in the context of fast-growing developing countries.
