APCSS alumnus Shafqat Munir writes, "Despite being a relatively new concept, Feminist Foreign Policy (FFP) has been gaining considerable momentum in recent years. In 2014, Sweden became the first country to establish an FFP, putting forth a unique and transformative foreign policy agenda. The Swedish Foreign Service centered their policy around intersectionality focused on the three Rs—rights, representation, resources—which directly impact women. After Sweden, other nations followed suit. In 2017, Canada announced a Feminist International Assistance policy with key areas such as inclusive governance and human dignity. France, Luxembourg, and Mexico declared similar objectives in 2019. However, FFPs have mostly emerged out of Europe, where women’s rights are relatively better than in other regions. FFP’s true test lies in its feasibility in nations where women and minorities face considerable disadvantages."
