Who’s Afraid of a Feminist Foreign Policy?

Part of Nordic Matters

Sweden is the first country in the world to pursue a feminist foreign policy. But what does it mean, what are its objectives and why are foreign policy traditionalists so scared of it?

Speakers include Dr Lina Khatib, Head of the Middle East and North Africa Programme at Chatham House; Shaista Aziz, journalist, writer and former aid worker; and Ulf Samuelsson, Counsellor at the Swedish embassy. Chaired by Afua Hirsch, Social Affairs and Education Editor at Sky News.
