PhD Studentship: Socio-legal approaches to address the gender pay gap

University of Southampton - Centre For Private And Commercial Law (Cpcl)

The gender pay gap is caused by a mix of very complex economic and socio-legal issues. This doctoral study would focus on researching the social causes of the pay gap, particularly, those linked to childcare options available to parents (statutory leave and pay entitlements, enhanced schemes offered by employers, price of childcare, distribution of responsibilities between parents, etc.), to then suggest recommendations for reforming the regulatory approach. Qualitative data collection and/or a comparative law methodology would be encouraged.
