The Virtual Institute admitted 103 participants from 56 countries to the third edition of its online course on trade and gender, scheduled for January 4 to February 21. All participants were granted scholarships funded by the Government of Finland.
The 59 academics and 43 members of government, civil society and international organizations were selected from a pool of 173 applications.
Developed in cooperation with the UNCTAD Trade, Gender and Development Section, the course seeks to to enhance the knowledge about the links between trade and gender among stakeholders in developing and transition countries.
