Short description

In 2014, Sweden became the first country in the world to declare a feminist foreign policy, which shall permeate the three policy areas encompassed by Swedish foreign policy – foreign and security policy, development cooperation, and trade and promotion policy.

Ann Towns (P.I.), Kristen Kao, Elin Bjarnegård (Uppsala University) and Katarzyna Jezierska (University West) have been designated by the Expert Group of Aid Studies (EBA) to assess the Swedish Feminist Foreign Policy over time and its implementation and effectiveness across contexts.

The assessment will be carried out during 2022, with the final report delivered in fall of 2022.
