Economic development and social and cultural shifts have contributed to a decrease in gender-related inequalities across the world.
Taking a gender perspective has helped to reveal a number of structural inequalities between men and women in social, economic and political spheres, and encouraged the implementation of measures to address them. Efforts to mainstream gender equality in policy making have been critical in this regard.
UNCTAD developed an online course, in an effort to enhance knowledge about the links between trade and gender.
The course targets academics (from universities and research centres), policymakers and representatives of civil society in developing and transition countries involved in research, teaching, policy formulation and implementation, advocacy or field work in the area of trade and gender.
The deadline for applications is 6 May 2018.
