We’re seeking print journal submissions!

Our print journal ‘Disrupted’ seeks to understand, challenge, and critique mainstream foreign policy, through highlighting both experienced and emerging voices from across the globe. Feminist foreign policy is a relatively new political theory and praxis, and while several governments have implemented its methodologies, the surface has only just been scratched. Whether you are an academic or policy researcher, activist, or student – we want to hear from you!

The third edition of ‘Disrupted’ will focus on ‘Reproductive Health and Justice’.

We are particularly interested in articles which:

  • Use feminist analysis to engage with and challenge global power structures

  • Deconstruct the tendency toward Western-dominant foreign policy narratives

  • Discuss how feminist foreign policy can push for change

  • Are led by and incorporate marginalised voices to interrupt mainstream foreign policy ideas

  • Question assumptions about the objectivity of foreign policy

  • Paint the local into a larger global picture

  • Focus on contexts other than Europe & the USA

Be creative!

CFFP UK takes the view that a feminist foreign policy brings all voices to the table through whichever medium they choose to express themselves, so we are also seeking artwork, poetry, and other creative forms of expression to highlight and breakdown similar ideas as listed above. Get creative – we would love to see what a visual representation of a feminist foreign policy looks like to you.
