Feminist Foreign Policy and Nuclear Weapons


CGSC Member and PGR Laura Rose Brown has published a new paper with the European Union Non-Proliferation and Disarmament Consortium.

This paper asks how Feminist Foreign Policies (FFP) fit with non-proliferation and disarmament goals. In particular, it highlights the multifarious and overlapping approaches to FFP and locates nuclear weapons as a feminist issue that requires a feminist response. How transformative the adoption of an FFP might be for nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament is dependent on the specific vision of feminism adopted by a state.

Laura Rose’s current PhD research focuses on the intersection of gender and nuclear weapons policy. 

The full paper, ‘Feminist Foreign Policy and Nuclear Weapons: Contributions and Implications’ is available to read online.
