Towards a Feminist Foreign Policy

  • Starts12:30 pm on Monday, March 29, 2021
  • Ends2:00 pm on Monday, March 29, 2021

Join us for a discussion with Veronika Wand Danielsson, Head of the Americas Directorate at Sweden’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and former Ambassador of Sweden to NATO and to France.  In her present role, Wand-Danielsson is responsible for Sweden’s political, economic, security and cultural relations with North America, Latin America and the Caribbean. She maintains a keen interest in feminist foreign policy, something the Scandinavian countries have prioritized. While Sweden has been a leader on matters of domestic gender equality, Wand-Danielsson, following the footsteps of Margot Wallström, Sweden’s former foreign minister who was the first vice president of the European Commission, has become an active advocate for gender equality outside domestic politics, including in foreign policy.
