Title Women in the Informal Economy: Experiments in Governance from Emerging Countries Series Title UNU Policy Brief Volume/Issue No. 5 Publication Date 2013 Place of Publication Tokyo Publisher United Nations University Pages 8 Language eng Abstract Women entrepreneurs in the informal economy need business agreements with other women (and men) that offer 'space' for dialogue to learn and build business capabilities. While formalization of entrepreneurial activity is favourable under some circumstances, it can be detrimental under others, necessitating a case-by-case evaluation. Many top-down actions for women's empowerment in the informal sector are only effective in gender-neutral economic development programmes. In this Policy Brief, we argue that although policy interventions may be favourable, they are neither necessary not sufficient for change, as successful women rile models are often the best agents for sweeping change.
