Ценностные ориентации Афразийской зоны нестабильности: гендерные измерения
The article considers the value orientations of the Afrasian zone of instability on the basis of two gender dimensions: dimension of gender power and economic gender dimension. The authors include in the Afrasian zone of instability the Middle East (including North Africa) all the Big Middle East (including Central Asia and Pakistan), as well as the Sahel countries. The analysis allows us to conclude that, according to some of the country's values, the Afrazi zone forms a fairly compact cluster, which differs markedly both from the countries of Africa south of the Sahel and from the Eastern Islamic countries (Bangladesh, Indonesia and Malaysia). The differences of the countries of the Afrasian zone from Africa south of the Sahel are especially pronounced in these dimensions. The Eastern Islamic countries differ quite strongly from the countries of the Afrasian zone in the political gender space, but their differences are not so pronounced in the economic gender space, although these differences, however, are statistically significant. This fact correlates well with the fact that the countries of Africa south of the Sahel are characterized by high female labor force participation rates, which radically differs them from the countries of the Afrasian zone, for the majority of which extremely low female labor force participation rates are rather typical. At the same time, the Eastern Islamic countries (which are characterized by female labor force participation rates that are close to the world average) do not differ so much from the countries of the Afrasian zone in the economic geneder value dimension (although these differences are still statistically significant).
