Abstract and Keywords
The chapter examines the status of gender and trade organizing through the present and explores the legacy of the International Gender and Trade Network (IGTN)—a network of women’s organizations, researchers, and institutional gender focal points—in mobilizing to transform the impacts of economic policy on gender inequalities. These gender advocates joined efforts as the IGTN to mobilize around global and regional trade and investment policies and agreements from 1999 to 2009. The chapter explores how IGTN developed the triple strategy of knowledge building and research, economic/trade literacy and networking/advocacy to focus policymakers and trade negotiators’ attention on the gender implications of trade policy and trade agreements at multilateral, plurilateral, regional, and bilateral levels.
