Three-day Training Program on Trade, Human Rights and Gender: The Current Policy Landscape & Opportunities for Advocacy

Together with Amnesty International UK, Trade Justice Movement (TJM), and the Gender and Development Network (GADN), CORE is hosting a three-day training program from 12-14 June on Trade, Human Rights and Gender.

Trade policy is now centre stage in the dynamics of the UK’s departure from the EU, offering opportunities to influence developments that may have enormous consequences for human rights in the UK and around the world. This course aims to demystify the interface between trade policy and human rights and explore how to communicate the connections to lawmakers and policymakers.

Day one will look at the implications of trade policy for human rights, giving an overview of WTO rules, the EU’s framework and challenges posed by Brexit. Day two will explore how to frame a feminist analysis of trade policy, and day three will address the gaps and opportunities in the current advocacy landscape on trade and human rights.

The training is free of charge. See the concept note here for more information on how to register.
