Trade, Gender, and Post-War Recovery, Part Two: Visioning Feminist Trade Alternatives for Post-War Recovery and Sustainable Peace
The 2nd in a two-part webinar series, "Trade, Gender & Post-War Recovery: Exploring the Arguments & Intersections," a collaboration between the Gender & Trade Coalition and Consortium on Gender, Security & Human Rights, featuring:

-Nandini Chami, IT for Change
-Diyana Yahaya, Independent Feminist Activist
-Chair: Nancy Kachingwe, South Feminist Futures

This 2nd webinar looks at the world as it could be, exploring how feminist thinkers have envisioned alternatives for post-war recovery and sustainable peace, including:
• Feminist approaches to growing economies after war require different instruments
• The social and physical infrastructure that is centered in feminist thinking
• Feminist state and budget planning to center and nurture women
• The violence of neoliberal economic models in rebuilding egalitarian post war societies

In this two-part webinar series, we examine the kind of trading paradigms currently being pursued in post-war contexts, and ask what relationships these have–if any–with sustainable peace? A feminist analysis is critical to this exploration, as it is not only the realm of war/peace/security, but also the realm of trade, that have deeply gendered dynamics, and the successes and failures of recovery and reconstruction are felt disproportionately by women. The unequal gendered impacts of trade liberalization and the international free trade architecture that promote it have been well-documented by feminist scholars and activists in recent decades. More recently, the connections between climate justice, digital justice, and trade justice have also been highlighted. These analyses have been successful at illuminating the unequal global dynamics of power that exist between the north and south and the extractive relationship that underpins it. However, the intersections of gender, trade and post war recovery remain a relatively unexplored area, a gap this webinar series is meant to address.
