This document analyzes gender and trade, focusing on linkages with development policies and welfare at the micro, meso, macro and international levels. It first examines some key concepts in trade theory from a gender perspective, demonstrating that trade, like macroeconomic policy, is gender blind, not gender neutral. Second, the module discusses the implications of introducing a gender perspective for understanding processes of trade and economic growth, examining gender value-chain analysis to understand the interaction of gender and trade. Third, the module critiques trade liberalization from a gender perspective, including case studies.
