Mainstreaming Gender in Free Trade Agreements

Mexico - 8 July 2020

Trade topics: Gender and Trade

Working with ITC, I have prepared a new and the very first tool-kit to gauge gender responsiveness in trade agreements. The tool-kit is explained in the report I have prepared for ITC. The report also includes ten steps to mainstream gender in trade deals and model clauses for countries to adapt. These lessons are based on a research assessment of 73 selected free trade agreements in force among 25 Commonwealth countries.
