markdownabstractThis dissertation focuses on the interconnectedness of informality and social protection in Ecuador, by means of answering the overarching question as to whether recent social protection policy initiatives have reinforced processes of labour informality, adapted to them or attenuated them. This dissertation draws on localised research to further explore the interactions between social protection and labour market structures, focusing on the gendered and generational aspects of welfare provisioning.
