Political Economy of Globalization (PEG)

DAWN's first global analysis provided a strong critique of the dominant economic model. DAWN's theme of Alternative Economic Frameworks, which provided the focus for the network's continuing work on the economic growth model until 1995, was renamed Political Economy of Globalization in 1996.

Under this theme, DAWN monitors and analyses the systematic processes of economic globalization and trade liberalization and their impacts on poor women of the South, working closely with other global development networks for greater accountability and radical restructuring of institutions like the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, the United Nations system and (from 1999) the World Trade Organization.

Through the years, DAWN had gained much insights on how the Bretton Woods Institutions worked from its participation in short-lived accountability processes and mechanisms set up as a consequence of women's criticisms of the World Bank at the Beijing Conference (Structural Adjustment Participatory Review Initiative - SAPRI - and the External Gender Consultative Group - EGCG); realized the huge challenges in engendering with a south feminist perspective mainstream institutions and large development networks, including the United Nations Systems; and increasingly strengthened its commitment to develop feminist and heterodox economic literacy programs on globalization as well as undertake collaborative global and regional advocacy with civil society organizations in the South and global feminist networks (e.g. WWG on Financing for Development; Trade-Finances Linkages Network).
