International Gender Policy / LGBTIQ+

The global rise of structural oppression and violence against women and LGBTIQ+, the strengthening of anti-gender networks and anti-feminist attitudes and the fragmentation of feminist movements are contemporary challenges. We analyse (patriarchal) gender and power relations, support spaces for action for a democratisation of gender relations and promote intersectional and international gender-political narratives. In doing so, we stand up for reproductive justice, strengthen feminist solidarities and coalitions and call for a feminist organisational and leadership culture.

Practicing Feminist Foreign Policy in the Everyday: A Toolkit

Explainer

Feminist foreign policy is emerging as a new paradigm in international relations. The concept raises expectations of a more peaceful and just foreign policy, but its theoretical dimension and practical implementation are often not clearly defined. This toolkit tries to close this gap and clarify key terms of feminist foreign policy, as well as outline the practical application of the feminist approach to international diplomacy, to security, environmental, development, trade and migration policy.
