What is the Feminist Foreign Policy?
Feminist Foreign Folicy has gained traction within national and international foreign policy discourse and policy-making. Many countries have already adopted the Feminist Foreign Policy, starting with Sweden in 2014, followed by a Canadian Feminist Foreign Assistance Policy in 2017, France and Luxembourg in 2019 and, most recently, by Mexic in 2020. Still, few are familiar with it.
The Center fo Feminist Foreign Policy (CFFP) explanations. https://centreforfeministforeignpolicy.org/our-story
“A Feminist Foreign Policy (FFP) is a political framework centred around the wellbeing of marginalised people and invokes processes of self-reflection regarding foreign policy’s hierarchical global systems. FFP takes a step outside the black box approach of traditional foreign policy thinking and its focus on military force, violence, and domination by offering an alternate and intersectional rethinking of security from the viewpoint of the most vulnerable. It is a multidimensional policy framework that aims to elevate women’s and marginalised groups’ experiences and agency to scrutinise the destructive forces of patriarchy, colonisation, heteronormativity, capitalism, racism, imperialism, and militarism. CFFP believes a feminist approach to foreign policy provides a powerful lens through which we can interrogate the violent global systems of power that leave millions of people in perpetual states of vulnerability.”
