On March 1, 2023, the Ger­man govern­ment an­chor­ed a "Fe­mi­nist For­eign Policy" (FFP) in the com­ple­mentary guide­lines of the Fed­eral For­eign Office (AA) and the Fed­eral Min­istry for Eco­nom­ic Co­op­er­a­tion and De­vel­op­ment (BMZ). As in other coun­tries, FFP is un­der­stood as an in­clu­sive po­li­cy ap­proach that aims in par­tic­u­lar to strength­en the rights, re­sour­ces and re­pre­sen­ta­tion ("3 Rs") of wo­men as well as chil­dren and mar­gin­a­lized groups. The fo­cus of FFP lies on se­cur­i­ty and peace, with gen­der e­qui­ty and par­ti­ci­pa­tion ta­king up the role of de­fin­ing, ba­sic pre­re­qui­si­tes.

What does FFP mean for in­ter­na­tion­al e­co­nom­ic and aca­dem­ic co­op­er­a­tion? Where and how can sci­en­tists get in­vol­ved? What role will in­ter­me­diary or­gan­i­za­tions play? These and o­ther ques­tions will be dis­cus­sed by Verena Blechinger-Talcott, Peter Kettner, Victoria Scheyer and Claudia Zilla un­der the mo­der­a­tion of Katharina Peetz at the Policy Talk "Fe­mi­nist For­eign Po­li­cy: Ein neu­es Pa­ra­dig­ma für in­ter­na­tion­a­le Wis­sen­schafts­ko­op­er­a­tion­en?" or­gan­ized by the DAAD - Kom­pe­tenz­zen­trum In­ter­na­tion­ale Wis­sen­schafts­ko­op­er­a­tion (KiWi). Re­cep­tion de­liv­ered by Joybrato Mukherjee.
