Webinar | Trade and Gender: Translating Knowledge into Practice
As gender provisions become increasingly common features of international trade agreements, and an informal working group of World Trade Organization (WTO) members and observers considers the trade–gender nexus, what have we learned, and where can we improve?
This webinar, the latest in the joint series organized by the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) and the University of Geneva's Faculty of Law, explored in detail the relationship between trade, gender, knowledge, and policy, considering what we know, how we know it, and where we can do more to ensure that this knowledge is translated into practice.
The event was held on June 8, 2021, on the Zoom platform from 3 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. CEST.
- What gender provisions in trade agreements mean to achieve.
- What are the positive aspects of the knowledge we have in this field and the processes that exist to generate this knowledge.
- Why this knowledge is not always translated into practice.
- What options may exist to ensure that knowledge about the impacts of trade and trade policy on women is translated into policy that favours gender equality.
Confirmed speakers included:
- Nathalie Bernasconi-Osterwalder, Executive Director, IISD Europe, and Senior Director, Economic Law and Policy, IISD (moderator)
- Caroline Dommen, Associate, IISD
- James Harrison, Professor, University of Warwick School of Law
- Georgina Wainwright-Kemdirim, Special Advisor, Inclusive Trade, Global Affairs Canada
- Ignacia Simonetti, Independent Gender Consultant
