Description: 

Standard IFI prescriptions for post-war economic recovery, focusing overwhelmingly on growth of GDP, have only served to deepen pre-existing inequalities and create new ones for countries emerging from conflict. In return, the prospects for gender-equitable, sustainable peace are diminished. The question of what kind of economic growth could work to support gender equality in post-war contexts is central to this workshop and integral to the Consortium’s “Feminist Roadmap for Sustainable Peace and Planet” project. This report summarizes three areas of focused discussion during the multi-day workshop: the core economic needs and challenges of post-war countries, critiques of current economic recovery practice, and new feminist economic approaches, ending with a discussion of strategies and solutions going forward.
