It discusses recent research developmentsconceptual and methodological advancesand based on the identification of central research gaps and methodological challenges, it indicates avenues for future research. Finally, the paper casts a critical view on the oexplanatory power' of contemporary research on womens employment and discusses appropriate research designs for the evaluation of policy effects on womens employment.
