Feminist Foreign Policy

As the first organisation dedicated to promoting a Feminist Foreign Policy, we are committed to developing it conceptually and implementing tangible feminist solutions to foreign policy problems. Part of that is creating Feminist Foreign Policy programmes, networks, and communities that can directly tackle current inequalities in representation, knowledge and policy-making.

CFFP Feminist Foreign Policy

1 year since our Feminist Foreign Policy Summit!

On the 13th of April 2022, in partnership with the governments of Canada, Sweden, and Mexico, civil society organisations ICAN, CREA, ICRW, and the Open Society Foundations, the Centre for Feminist Foreign Policy hosted the first ever Feminist Foreign Policy Summit. The Summit was an opportunity to: Bring together the leading thinkers and practitioners in the field of Feminist Foreign Policy to support the exchange of best practices, knowledge, and expertise; Support advocacy efforts for the uptake of Feminist Foreign Policy among new actors; and take a stand against global inequality and exclusion.

Our projects

Walking the Talk

Walking the Talk wants to boost the adoption and implementation of Feminist Foreign Policies (FFPs) and gender equality in Germany, France, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, and the European Union. In other words, inclusive foreign policies that champion gender equality and reflect the voices of women and LGBTQI+ people from the Global South.
