The German government has set itself ambitious goals in the area of gender equality. The coalition agreement states, among other things: Together with our partners, we want to strengthen the rights, resources and representation of women and girls worldwide and promote societal diversity in the sense of a feminist foreign policy (free translation). The latter is exactly what this event will be about. How does the new feminist foreign policy differ from the previous foreign policy goals and actions of the German Foreign Office? What is the new coalition government building on and how will citizens and partners in the world notice and measure the difference? Marta Lucía Ramirez, Vice President and Foreign Minister of Colombia will share her thoughts and expectations on this in a video message and Gary Barker, PhD, CEO and Founder of PROMUNDO and member of the Steering Committee of the Coalition for a Feminist Foreign Policy in the United States will give the guest lecture. For the panel discussion we were able to win Dr. Günter Sautter, Director General, Federal Foreign Office and Marthe Wandou, laureate of the Livelihood Award (Alternative Nobel Prize) 2021.
