What kind of compass does contemporary international politics require? The Centre for Feminist Foreign Policy (CFFP) is a non-profit organisation (gGmbH) based in Berlin that advocates for feminist foreign policy, challenging the conventional standards of international politics. Feminist foreign policy means using all diplomatic and foreign policy tools in a way that reduces systemic injustices and brings human security to the fore. For only in this way – instead of a focus on military strength and nation-state security – can sustainable peace be achieved. No peace without feminism. As part of her presentation, Nina Bernarding, co-founder and co-executive director of the CFFP, provides insights into their work practices.
As part of the 1/2/8 Research Forum – Spot on Governance.
A project within the framework of The Alliance of International Production Houses, funded by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media.
