Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallström 2015 feminist foreign policy marked a historical turning point in women’s participation and gender equality in international affairs. The policy is framed around wider security and foreign policy objectives based on the 4 Rs:

Reality check: policy should be based on facts and disaggregated data, because women, girls, men, and boys have different needs

Rights: women’s rights are human rights

Resources: apply a gender perspective in attribution of aid and resources to correctly address needs of men and women

Representation: ensure women’s rights and participation in peacebuilding and international negotiations, and planning of operations and development programs

The EU’s 2016 Global Strategy brought European foreign and security policy into the 21st century by strengthening a comprehensive approach to deal with today’s world rather than that of 10 years ago. While gender is mentioned in the strategy, it does not constitute a fundamental principle of the thinking.

What would an EU feminist foreign policy look like?

The goal is to hear YOUR ideas and make sure they land on decision-makers’ desks in Europe and across the globe!
