Abstract:This research will take a look at a new concept of applying foreign policy which sets the focus on liberal feminist values of establishing gender equality by including women into existing frameworks of international organizations and institutions. With the main explorative research question of “How are the principles of liberal feminist foreign policy implemented in the UNSCR 1325 and in Sweden’s feminist foreign policy?, this research is drawing a linkage between the theory of liberal feminist foreign policy (philosophy) and liberal feminist foreign policy in action (policy and program) by using the discursive institutionalism of ideas by Vivian A. Schmidt (2008). With the use of qualitative content analysis, the two-fold analysis will answer how the most influential policy (UNSCR 1325) and program (Sweden’s feminist foreign policy) of establishing gender equality by including women in foreign policy, have implemented the philosophy of applying liberal FFP and its five principles. Not only does this research aim to present a more radical concept of applying foreign policy, but to highlight that the mainstream ways of foreign policy are jeopardizing international gender equality and women’s human rights – an implementation of liberal feminist foreign policy has the potential of counteracting.
