This fifth edition of ‘Perspectives on Gender Discourse’ analyses the various international agricultural trade agreements that shape and influence Kenyan agricultural trade from a gender perspective. It provides the basis for critical reflection on the implications of globalised trade relations on gender, with particular emphasis on agricultural trade, the mainstay of the Kenyan economy. The objective of these discussions is twofold. Firstly is to inform and enlighten the reader on the nature, content and progress of the international agricultural trade agreements that Kenya is party to, but more importantly, to provide a synopsis of the implications that these agreements have on both men and women’s socio-economic concerns.
