Feminist Foreign Policy: Online Course

Since 2014, 13 countries have either adopted or committed to adopting Feminist Foreign Policies. However, a lot more needs to be done in prioritizing feminism in feminist foreign policies. While some have chosen to continue dispensing aid, some chose to add women and stir.


Instead of choosing to engage with feminist values and focusing on intersectionality and peace, these policies continued to normalize “feminism-lite” agendas. In reality, women and non-binary people in the global south have been "doing" feminist foreign policy for generations now. Movements ranging from resisting colonialism to practicing food sovereignty, from inclusive lawmaking to deploying international law in pushing for their rights - the wealth of knowledge embodied in praxis in the majority world must be centered.


This course recognizes these gaps and takes a deep dive into the field to build strong understandings of Feminist Foreign Policy as a concept. It offers a comprehensive overview of feminist foreign policies as they exist, presents the building blocks of such policies, and presents lessons from rich examples from the majority world.
