ScotGov report on feminist approach to foreign policy

The Alliance and SCGA welcome today’s publication by the Scottish government of the evidence report exploring what a feminist approach to global affairs might look like for Scotland.

The full report can be found here: Stakeholder engagement workshops on Scotland’s feminist approach to foreign policy: evidence report – (

Working jointly on this report, the Alliance and SCGA highlighted 5 key messages that we hope the Scottish government will now implement:

  1. Support feminist groups and women’s organisations – by shifting power to them, and creating spaces at decision making tables
  2. Make funding feminist – meaning making it accessible, flexible and longer term
  3. Be an innovator and influencer – Scotland has a good story to tell on progress towards a wellbeing economy, a just transition, and tackling gender-based violence… tell it globally!
  4. Speak out –  dare to show moral leadership on key issues such as economic and trade justice, the need for demilitarisation and transformative climate finance
  5. Ensure policy coherence between national and international policies – still too much to do here – use the review of the National Outcomes to help make this happen.
