Feminist Foreign Policy in Theory and in Practice

Feminist Foreign Policy in Theory and in Practice outlines the foundations of feminist foreign policy and the fundamental concepts discussed and utilized by governments, civil society organizations, and those in the academic community as they define, formulate and implement it. 

This book furthers the global conversation around how countries can develop and execute approaches to foreign policy and national security that go beyond conflict prevention and resolution and use a feminist or gender lens to increase gender equality and women’s leadership in the security sector.

It reviews how governments have implemented feminist foreign, development, and trade policies at the multilateral and national levels, and sets forth the unique global role of the U.S. Government, using case studies to discuss what would be needed to implement a feminist foreign policy in the U.S.

The textbook as described by Dr. Matiur Rahman, “The seminal work, “Feminist Foreign Policy in Theory and in Practice” by Stephenie Foster and Susan A. Markham, provides a comprehensive and insightful exploration of this evolving field, critically analysing its theoretical foundations, practical applications, and prospects.”
