Under the current dominant economic model, whose priorities and needs are being cared for? Before, during, and after conflict, how do economic, political, and social policies exacerbate or reduce inequalities, and what are the gendered impacts of these policy decisions? Who has the authority to make these decisions in the first place?
On 18 March, WILPF held a workshop with Young WILPF members and MENA partners on feminist political economy, to address some of these questions from a feminist peace perspective. The workshop was led by Nela Porobić Isaković, head of WILPF's WomenOrganising for Change in Bosnia project and focal point on Feminist Political Economy. It was attended by WILPF members and partners who were originally planning to come to CSW64 from different parts of the world, including from Australia, Yemen, Japan, Sweden, and Lebanon.
