GrOW Research Series


Advancing scholarly research on women’s economic growth and empowerment.

What We Do

The GrOW Research Series brings together scholarly research on women’s economic empowerment and economic growth in low-income countries, and provides a conceptual and empirical basis for policy-making. It is also the official research platform for the Growth and Economic Opportunities for Women (GrOW) program. This series is housed at the Institute for the Study of International Development (ISID) at McGill University in Montreal, Canada.
