b. The individual and community-level factors hindering Jordanian and Syrian women’s participation in the formal labour market, with a particular emphasis on the societal pressures which hinder women’s engagement in the formal labour market.

c. The enabling factors (financial, material, logistics, societal, inclusion efforts etc.) for women to become economically active in the formal labour market at the national level.

d. The drivers of women’s participation in the formal labour market, including both financial considerations and non-economic factors (including the role of social protection, tax law etc.)
