Export-Oriented Policies, Womenâ€™s Work Burden and Human Development in Mauritius
This paper, looking at the case study of Mauritius, attempts to understand the factors affecting the relationship between EOP, womenâ€™s work burden along different social backgrounds. The analysis is based on between-method triangulation consisting of a quantitative survey in the industrial sector and a qualitative survey in the industrial and services sectors. The main result shows that women and the social reproductive process were not affected in the same way depending on the socioprofessional background of the woman.
