New handbook on Sweden's Feminist Foreign Policy

29 Aug 2018

On 23 August, Minister for Foreign Affairs Margot Wallström launched a handbook on Sweden's feminist foreign policy.The hope is that the handbook will be a valuable resource for all contributors to international gender equality work.

 Following extensive international gender equality work over almost four years, there are a number of lessons that the Government wishes to share – methods, experiences and examples of how the policy is conducted.

The hope is that the handbook will be a valuable resource for all contributors to international gender equality work.

International interest in Sweden’s feminist foreign policy is great, which has been noted by both the Ministry for Foreign Affairs and missions abroad.

The Stockholm Forum on Gender Equality, held in Stockholm this spring, resulted in even more people becoming curious and committed, which is not least illustrated by the fact that the forum is to be followed up in Tunis in spring 2019.

Many conversations return to the question of how we have worked. The handbook answers many of the ‘how to’ questions and is structured to be relevant whether you are working multilaterally, bilaterally or on changing social norms in general.
