(31.1.2019) “The Europe we want? Feminist approaches to gender, migration, and democracy” was an Erasmus+ project that brought together five women´s rights organisations from different European countries in 2017 and 2018:
CEIM, GADIP, Karat Coalition, Le Monde selon les femmes, and WIDE

Cover Briefing Paper 2018(6.12.2018) Policy makers in and outside Europe have since 2017 discovered a gender divide in the trade policy and are starting to introduce specific policies to promote women’s economic empowerment. However these new policies and reflections fall short of a trade policy that effectively promotes and protects the rights of women.

This briefing paper published by WIDE+ gives an overview of the ways in which EU trade policy hinders the protection and promotion of women’s human rights, and makes several recommendations to EU policymakers to change this. The paper is available in English, French, Spanish and German.
