Team CWGL Takes on IAFFE

Written by Magalí Brosio (Sr Program Coordinator, Economic Policy)


The Center for Women’s Global Leadership (CWGL) was thrilled to be part of the 2018 annual conference of the International Association for Feminist Economics (IAFFE). Between June 19 and 22, more than two hundred Feminist Economists from around the world convened at SUNY New Paltz to discuss issues around feminist debates on migration, inequalities, and resistance.

During the conference, Radhika Balakrishnan (CWGL’s Faculty Director) and Alexa Russo (CWGL Research Assistant) presented their work around linking the political economy and gender-based violence across The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Additionally, Balarkishnan was one of the speakers on the closing plenary, where she highlighted the importance of using a Human Rights framework as a tool to transform neoliberal economic policies.

Finally, Magalí Brosio - CWGL's Sr. Program Coordinator for Economic Policy- presented on a panel where she highlighted CWGL’s work around gender-based violence in the world of work.
