Gender and trade

The Gender Agenda in Trade - a thought-provoking piece in the IntLawGrrls on the 'gender-agenda' in trade highlights the informal sector in trade and the predominance of women in this sector which often goes unnoticed, unecognized and unaccounted.

The biggest challenge would be to devise strategies to ensure that the benefits of globalisation reach these sectors as well as making sure that these groups participate in the global economy. This is a neglected area of trade policy research and implementation.
