WIIS Brussels Advisory Committee member Shada Islam speaks on EPC podcast


Shada Islam, a well-known commentator in Brussels on EU affairs and WIIS Brussels Advisory Committee member, features on the December 16 episode of the European Policy Centre (EPC) podcast on feminist foreign policy.


Feminist foreign policy is gaining momentum around the world. But what makes a foreign policy 'feminist'? And why is it important to re-evaluate defence and security policies through a decidedly feminist lens ? The podcast also covers intersectionality, the need for broader inclusion in foreign policy, what an EU feminist foreign policy could and should look like and shared admiration for New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.
