Huh publication

Economist Yunsun Huh, an assistant professor of Democracy and
Justice Studies, and Women’s and Gender Studies, is the author of the lead
article in the December 2013 edition of The Journal of Women and
Economics
. Her paper’s title is “Gender Equality, Economic Development, and
Labor Market Success of East Asian Migrants.” It examines the U.S. labor market
performance of East Asian migrants (from Korea, Japan and China) from a gendered
perspective. Analyzing the motivating factors, Huh compares the status of
development and women’s empowerment and subsequent labor market outcomes. The
results show human capital factors and home country gender equality play
significant roles in shaping outcomes.
