Key Issues

To mark the occasion of the International Women’s Day 2020, UNCTAD will host a lunchtime debate with the Deputy Secretary-General, Geneva-based women ambassadors and current and former trade negotiators on key questions:

How are women ambassadors and negotiators influencing the negotiation table and outcomes? Do they influence because, in their approach and focus, women negotiate differently?

How are women ambassadors and negotiators advocating for women’s rights?

Why are fewer than 10% of peace agreements signed by women?
