Stephan Klasen is considered one of the most distinguished scholars on gender economics in the 21st century. Over the past 25 years, he has tirelessly worked to understand the complex phenomena of gender inequality: From counting the number of missing women in the world and shedding light on why women go missing, to showing that leaving girls out of school not only deprives them, but also robs society of the opportunity to thrive on the talents of its entire population; from understanding why equal rights and rising incomes everywhere have not resulted in women participating more at work, to measuring gender inequality in its various dimensions. This volume, a collection of some of Stephan Klasen’s most important writings on the topic of gender inequality, honours his academic life and gives the reader an in-depth insight into both what we know and don’t (yet) know about the economics of gender inequality.

Gender Politics, Ummah Approach, Liberal Order, UN, Afghanistan, Tunisia, EgyptGender politics is the most visible marker of conflict over identity within the Middle East. It also lies at the core of cultural conflicts in the relationship between the Muslim
world and the "West". Why is gender such a divisive issue between the West and the Middle East? A theoretical framework and four case studies are employed to answer this question.
The fact that Stephan Klasen can always give a precise answer to very complicated or even complex questions inspired the idea for this book. We asked 50 development economists (and friends of Stephan) around the world to answer 50 (serious and not-so serious) questions about development research and policy. We were extremely impressed with everyone’s willingness to leave the comfort zone of academia and the safety of long-winded answers, by approaching what could be seen as big, complicated questions with short, sometimes witty, and frequently sincere responses.
