Andreas Kotsadam (Frisch Centre, Oslo): Jobs and intimate partner violence in Ethiopia

Most previous evidence on employment and Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) is based on correlational studies. While such correlations are illustrative they do not tell us whether employment affects IPV, whether IPV affects employment, or whether there is some other factor that affects both employment and IPV. We identify the effects of jobs on IPV by collaborating with large companies in Ethiopia to randomly assign jobs to female applicants. In the presentation I will present results from the first six month follow up.
