Identificar los espacios laborales para mujeres y jóvenes, su ampliación y contracción en el contexto de las transformaciones actuales por las que atraviesa el empleo: precarización, flexibilidad, desregulación, subcontratación, entre otros. El trabajo muestra las tendencias del empleo de estos sectores a nivel internacional, nacional (Mexique) y estatal (Yucatán) en donde destacan: el incremento del desempleo abierto y la inequidad de género. Models of economic take-off, structural adjustment policies, developmentism, etc., institutions realize the base of development economics. The concept of "good governance" renews the debate on development and the wealth of nations by giving a prominent place to institutions. Thus, this paper gives aims to show how the institutions, and thus the "good governance", can play an important role in socio-economic development. First, we return on such theories that have marked development economics during 40 years after the Second World War. Then, with the help of the new institutional economics, we present the relation between good governance and economic development
