With the 25th anniversary of the Beijing Platform for Action and the 20th anniversary of the UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security this year, we are asking the question: What should a feminist foreign policy look like in the 2020s?
Together with the Open Think Tank Network, foraus - Swiss Forum on Foreign Policy has initiated a transnational participatory process to generate innovative policy solutions to achieve a feminist foreign policy. From April to Mid-May, they will ask experts and the public to contribute policy proposals online on Policy Kitchen or during any of the seven virtual workshops below. The resulting publication will be presented to decision-makers across Europe this fall.
Submit your proposals here, register for a workshop below, and help them spread this invitation in your networks!
