The Middle East Development Journal published the paper “Disentangling the impact of trade barriers on wages: Evidence from the MENA region” in their January 2022 issue. The paper has been co-authored by Dr. Chahir Zaki Associate Professor of Economics at the Faculty of Economics and Political Science (FEPS) – Cairo University and EMNES Director for Egypt, Nora Aboushady, Assistant Professor at FEPS – Cairo University and Researcher at EMNES, and Yasmine Kamal, Assistant Lecturer at FEPS – Cairo University and Researcher at EMNES.
The paper proposes a comprehensive assessment of the effect of different trade barriers (tariffs, non-tariff measures and services restrictions) on wage disparities in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. These disparities are studied in three dimensions: industry premia, gender-based and skill-based disparities.
It is based on the paper “Disentangling the impact of trade barriers on wages: Evidence from the MENA region” published by EMNES.
The Middle East Development Journal aims to deepen understanding of development in the Middle East and North Africa and strengthen the social science research community in the region. The journal emphasizes research falling under the heading of applied economics, although theoretical papers and contributions from related disciplines such as political science and sociology are also considered.
