Call for articles and artwork - Centre for feminist foreign policy

The theme of the second edition of our print journal ‘Disrupted’ is ‘post-colonialism and foreign policy’. What does this mean? Well that is up to you! It could be a post-colonial analysis of Indian Foreign Policy, or it could question how post-colonialism can help us understand Sweden’s Feminist Foreign Policy? Or, maybe a post-colonial feminist analysis of the “abortion clause” in American foreign population policy? We welcome all ideas!

  • Use post-colonialism and feminism to engage with and challenge global power structures
  • Deconstruct the tendency toward Western-dominant foreign policy narratives
  • Discuss how feminist foreign policy can push for equality beyond how Sweden and Canada have utilized it
  • Are led by and incorporate marginalised voices to interrupt mainstream foreign policy ideas
  • Question assumptions about the objectivity of foreign policy
  • Paint the local into a larger global picture
  • We are also interested in including art, poetry, and other creative forms of expression to highlight and breakdown similar ideas as listed above. Get creative – we would love to see what a visual representation of a feminist foreign policy looks like to you!
