Job Prospects for Women and Youth in the Mekong

Economies are growing in the Mekong Region but women and youth face challenges in getting better jobs that will allow them to share in the benefits. These groups experience relatively high unemployment, unpaid family work and other forms of informal employment, and low earnings. Improving the employment of women and youth is also central to the Sustainable Development Goals, specifically on gender equality (SDG 5) and on decent work (SDG 8), as well as Canada’s Feminist International Assistance Policy.

Making Liberal Internationalism Great Again:

English

The liberal world order is under threat. The rise of populism and Far Right movements, the increasingly isolationist foreign policies of the United States, and the growing strength of non-liberal powers like China and Russia indicate that the institutions and values that have governed the post-war world order may no longer be taken for granted. 

Join us for this Roundtable where scholars from Canada, Denmark and Norway debate the role, possibilities and obstacles of middle power liberal internationalism in the current political climate.
