UNCTAD online course on Trade and Gender
15 April - 02 June 2019
UNCTAD trade E-learning platform

Key Issues

The objective of the course is to provide participants with the knowledge needed to analyse the two-way relationship between trade and gender, and ultimately produce gender-aware policy recommendations.

To this end, the course introduces the concepts of trade and gender, and combines theory on the interaction between trade and gender with empirical evidence.

At the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • ​Look at the economy from a gender perspective;
  • Identify the channels through which trade impacts women’s economic empowerment and well-being and the channels through which gender inequality impacts trade performance and competitiveness;
  • Use the knowledge acquired to produce policy-oriented research that could be used by national policymakers, and academic papers investigating the interplay between trade and gender;
  • Contribute to mainstreaming gender in trade and other policies.
  • The topics covered in this course are currently an active area of research and policy development.
  • An increasing number of researchers and policymakers are engaged in dissecting the relationship between trade and gender at the country and regional levels. Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to contribute to this relevant area of research and policy-oriented work.
