2013 Summer Seminar, July 15-18, Krakow, Poland


Valeria Esquivel is Associate Professor of Economics at the Universidad Nacional de General Sarmiento, Province of Buenos Aires, Argentina, and Research Associate, Levy Economics Institute of Bard College. She has published articles in national and international journals, and book chapters on the Argentinean labor market—and on how women and men fare in it—, labor market regulation, informality, income distribution, and poverty. She coordinated the team that designed and collected data for a time-use module introduced together with the Buenos Aires Annual Household Survey in 2005, and similarly coordinated the design for the Rosario Time Use Survey in 2010. She has also published in the field of time-use studies, on how better measure and analyze unpaid care work, on the framing of the advocacy for time-use studies in the South, and on the “care economy” in Latin America. Most recently, she has been able to merge her interests in the study of well-being and in time-use studies by taking part in the Levy Economics Institute project on “time and income” poverty measuring.
