Shaping Feminist Foreign Policy Conference 2023 (SFFP)
1 & 2 nov 2023 | World Forum, The Hague
Aims of the conference - The main aim of the conference is to continue to give shape to feminist foreign policy and to get this policy on the agenda, both in the Netherlands and worldwide. The conference also aims to expand the network of like-minded countries and countries that actively pursue a feminist foreign policy. One of the main themes of the conference is resources. The event aims to call attention to the need for additional funding for women’s rights organisations and movements in the Netherlands and abroad.
Themes - In line with Dutch feminist foreign policy, the conference has four main themes:
1. Rights. Women and marginalised groups all over the world must be able to invoke their universal rights and be safe from violence.
2. Representation. Women and marginalised groups must be represented and meaningfully involved in political and social decision-making processes.
3. Resources. There must be sufficient resources to implement feminist foreign policy. It is also important that women’s rights organisations and movements worldwide receive financial support.
4. Reality check. Since conditions differ around the world and not every approach has the same effect everywhere, Dutch efforts must be adapted to the local situation. This also means verifying at various moments the policy impact and whether the right target groups are being reached.
Registration: Many different organizations have had the chance to register. As there are still some spaces available, registration is now open for others as well. This is on an ‘first come, first served’ basis, and deadline for registration is 25 October, 23:59 / 11:59 PM (CET).
