Multinational Enterprises and the International Transmission of Gender Policies and Practices
Who’s behind it? – UNCTAD
How can it help? – The Multinational Enterprises and the International Transmission of Gender Policies and Practices examines the evidence of indirect spillover effects on local firms and labor markets, using data from case studies covering five countries across Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
The report underscores the importance of examining the impact of various transmission mechanisms to target policy approaches in support of gender equality, and finds that active enforcement and support for explicit non-discrimination policies is necessary to translate global policies across cultural and societal differences.
