Prof Grater at the ICTSD Reply

Over the past month, staff members of the School have been traveling!

Sonja at ICTSD June 2017Prof Sonja Grater was invited to take part in two workshops arranged by the International Centre for Trade and Sustainable Development (ICTSD), held in Divonne-les-Bains, France, on the 13th and 14th of June 2017. The first day was dedicated to forming a Gender Advisory Group for the ICTSD that could assess the current work that has been done by the ICTSD on trade and gender equality, and also plan several ways forward for further research projects on this topic. The group will revisit the progress that has been made in September 2017. The second day was a broader seminar focussed on the role of private sustainability standards in global value chains and understanding the impact that it has on realising sustainable development and growth. The group that attended this session will also be working together on possible further research into this topic.
