Trade and Gender: What Does The New TPPA Mean For Women In Developing Countries?

The Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for TransPacific Partnership (CPTPP) was born from the ashes of the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA), which fell apart when Donald Trump withdrew the United States from the TPPA on his first day in office. As more developing countries outside the partnership are looking to join the CPTPP, we analyse the current literature and explore how the CPTPP will likely impact women in the partnerships’ developing country members, in terms of the economy, food security, labour, its effect on policy space, the consequences of intellectual property rights, and the environment. Joining us to help us do this is Dhivya Kanagasingam, a researcher from the Asian-Pacific Resource & Research Centre for Women (ARROW).
