The intersection of Human Rights and Feminist Foreign Policy
Written by Leanne Smith, Chief Executive of the Australian Human Rights Commission, this Australian Feminist Foreign Policy Coalition (AFFPC) paper:
• examines how a human rights–based approach and feminist foreign policy (FFP) align;
• explores, in the words of US political scientist Valerie Hudson, how ‘the womanless world was unmade’ through the tireless work of both human rights advocates and feminists; and
• looks at the challenges and opportunities that make human rights and FFP the correct frameworks for confronting the consuming problems of our shared future.
