Feminist Foreign Policy: Between Disarmament, Diplomacy, and Decolonization

Centre for Feminist Foreign Policy disarmament diplomacy decolonization university college london

CFFP panel discussions are back! This May we are collaborating with UCL to dive into feminist foreign policy. This event's focus? Disarmament, diplomacy, and decolonization. 

There is so much momentum behind feminist foreign policy as an idea, but what does this look like in practice? Using disarmament as a springboard, we will imagine how diplomacy is done differently when disarmament is taken seriously by state actors, and how this process asks us to more closely scrutinize colonial legacies. 

At the end of the panel discussion, there will be time for a Q&A with the audience followed by drinks in the foyer. Stick around to chat with the CFFP team and each other - we are all doing extraordinary work, and you never know what collaborations can come out of a single conversation!

The event is free but please register through Eventbrite.

Beyond the Women, Peace, and Security Agenda
Oct

6:30 PM18:30

Beyond the Women, Peace, and Security Agenda

Tickets on sale 1 October. More event details here.

"Contemporary challenges to international peace and security look very different from those faced by the international community at the turn of the millennium. This implies that new issues and dilemmas must also be addressed and integrated into the Women, Peace and Security Agenda." -Torunn Tryggestad

The women, peace, and security (WPS) agenda, rooted in UN Security Council Resolution 1325 (2000), created a rhetorical and normative shift toward gender equality in international policy and has since become a cornerstone of the conflict prevention and post-conflict resolution processes. Though it is revolutionary in many ways, it remains limited in scope, and a focus on gender equality in international relations shouldn’t be bound solely by this approach.

Join us for a panel discussion exploring how we can piggyback off of and push beyond women, peace, and security. We'll explore the following questions:

-What is on the WPS agenda, and how is it limited in its framework?
-Does the inclusion of women in peace processes grant any power to transform and engage unequal structures or does it only legitimize them?
-Who are the women representing other women in such processes, and how can that be problematic?
-How do we transform peace processes as they are with gendered dynamics in mind?
-What lies beyond the WPS agenda?

.....................................
For those new to the WPS agenda, we recommend the following reads:

1. United Nations Peacekeeping - Women, peace, and security
2. Cohn, Kinsella, Gibbings - Women, Peace, and Security Resolution 1325
3. UN Women - Women at the forefront of peacebuilding

Intersectionality in UK Politics

Tickets will go on sale 1 September. Event details here.

"There is no such thing as a single-issue struggle because we do not live single-issue lives." - Audre Lorde

Kimberlé Crenshaw put a name to a movement when she first coined the term intersectionality. This idea helps to shed light on the overlap between various forms of oppression, which do not operate in isolation, but rather work to enforce one another. 

Political systems are built to maintain hierarchies and reinforce specific power dynamics which inevitably create and maintain institutional violence. So how can intersectionality help to dismantle the UK's politics-as-usual - a politics which prioritizes the voices of an elite few? How can policy be crafted in such a way that seeks to address systemic biases? What light can intersectionality shed on political power?

We are pulling together a fascinating group of speakers, both from academia and NGOs, who will speak to the questions above and share their insight as to how we can use intersectionality to disrupt politics-as-usual. Speakers to be announced shortly!

.....................................
For those new to the idea of intersectionality, we recommend the following reads:

1. Crenshaw - Demarginalizing the Intersection of Race and Sex: A Black Feminist Critique of Antidiscrimination Doctrine, Feminist Theory, and Antiracist Politics

2. Crenshaw - Mapping the Margins: Intersectionality, Identity Politics, and Violence Against Women of Color

3. Crenshaw - Why Intersectionality Can't Wait
