How to transform EU trade policy to protect women’s rights

WIDE+ Gender and Trade 2017 Position Paper

(30.6.2017) This paper critically examines contemporary European Union (EU) trade policy from a feminist perspective.

It argues that current EU external trade policy is fundamentally harmful to the human rights of women, men and children and to the preservation of our planet.

Its neoliberal core makes livelihoods more precarious, enhances inequalities, fosters financialisation of the economy, reduces access to medicines, undermines food sovereignty, and threatens environmental sustainability.

(4.7.2016) The world seems to be in turmoil, and Europe is deeply affected, as economic and political power is reconfiguring on a global scale. The recent Brexit is an expression of the deep divide in many countries, with right-wing populism on the rise. Years of austerity and market liberalisation politics have increased the social and economic precarity and feelings of insecurity.
