WIEGO Individual Members

Individual Members of WIEGO are drawn from two of WIEGO’s three constituencies: researchers, statisticians or academics who study the informal economy; and professionals in development agencies who work on issues related to the informal economy. The third constituency is membership-based organizations of informal workers – trade unions
cooperatives, or associations of various kinds – or trade unions that organize informal workers: such organizations are invited to become Institutional Members of WIEGO.

WIEGO Working Paper Series

The WIEGO Working Paper Series is part of our  Publication Series. Our working papers feature research that makes either an empirical or theoretical contribution to existing knowledge about the informal economy. Particular attention is paid to policy-relevant research. This series includes statistical profiles of informal employment and critical analysis of data collection and classification methods. Methodological issues and innovations, as well as suggestions for future research, are considered.

Informal Economy Monitoring Study (IEMS) Publications

These findings are based on research conducted in 2012 as part of the Informal Economy Monitoring Study (IEMS), a project under Inclusive Cities and led by WIEGO.

Conducted in 10 cities in Africa, Asia and Latin America, the study examines how informal livelihoods are changing, how informal workers respond, and what institutions help or hinder their lives.
