Side Event – 3
This session will explore the question of what kind of Pan-Africanism the AfCFTA is pursuing. It will then look specifically at what the AfCFTA is trying to achieve in terms of intra-continental trade expansion and what that means for women beyond gender equality but also in terms of women’s economic rights and broader economic justice. A feminist analysis of what the wider implications are for macroeconomic policy as a result of the AfCFTA will also be presented, followed by recommendations for feminist engagement. This will be done through the presentation of a new FEMNET policy paper on the same presented by researcher – Fatimah Kelleher with a panel of respondents.
