“Feminist” Foreign Policy: Ever More Followers (and Critics)?

Over the span of a couple of years, the concept of a “Feminist” Foreign Policy (FFP) has taken root in international diplomacy. Sweden declared the first FFP in 2014. So far, Canada, France, Spain, Mexico, Luxembourg, Libya, Germany, Chile and The Netherlands have also explicitly signed up to the idea. While initially met with scepticism and perhaps derision in some policy corners, this “change in approach” to a state’s external policies seems here to stay.
