Gender, Social Equity and Regional Economic Processes: Latin America and the Pacific perspectives

Alma Espino
Yvonne Underhill-Sem

Alma Espino and Yvonne Underhill-Sem discuss the issue of regionalism and regionalization in Latin America and in the Pacific. Although there are important differences between these realities, they highlight advantages, dangers and challenges of economic integration for gender and social equity focusing on the power relations operating at various levels. They emphasize the need to improve knowledge about the gender dimension of these processes. Understanding the gendered implications of the geographic expansion of global capitalism will allow feminists to build proposals of economic integration schemes that are more comprehensive, gender-aware and oriented to human development.
