This 1st webinar will look at the world as it is now, exploring fundamentals of
• Gender and trade
• The ways trade been used at national and international levels to engage with post-war recovery contexts
and using case studies to explore how the intersections have impacted the prospects for building gender-just peace that is both politically and environmentally sustainable.

Background:
In this two-part 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 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.
