Clara | 7 comments While reading the book, I got more interested in what organisations and country’s already implore (or try to) a feminist foreign politics and I stumbled upon the Centre for feminist foreign policy, based in London and Berlin. https://centreforfeministforeignpolic... they also offer publications and internships.
I also listened to some talks with their German leaders. They are mostly in German, but also one in English: ˋThe Peacebuilding Podcast. from conflict to common ground´, Ep. 45 ˋKristina Lunz. A Feminist Foreign Policy´.
Since they always mention Sweden as a good example, I can also recommend a talk with the former Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallström on the Podcast ˋFP´s First Personˋ, Episode ˋToward a more feminist foreign policy´.

Thanks Clara! I'll check those out!

Women Building Peace
Women Building Peace by Sanam Naraghi Anderlini
This is also a sublime, but dense text on the subject. It really looks at peacekeeping throughout the time span of pre-war, during war, and post war and specifically how limited women's power is in each stage. And not for lack of trying! It really shows you how harmful and destabilizing it can be when you ignore women and our part in a culture.
