Trade, Gender and Employment

Course Description

The Caribbean faces fundamental changes in terms of trade and the rules governing engagement in the international trading arena. The erosion of preferential trading arrangements, the implementation of the World Trade Organisation (WTO), the Caribbean Single Market and Economy (CSME) and the CARIFORUM/European Union Economic Partnership Agreement along with persistent balance of payment difficulties, demand that the impact on gender of the changes in the traditional terms of trade for the region be addressed.

The overall objective of this course is to provide participants with an understanding of the technical and political dimensions of international trade topics from a gender and development perspective.
