"Power in our society is concentrated in a few hands of very few people and it is always the same people."
Diplomacy is a men’s world – and Kristina Lunz is here to change this.
She wants to bring in the female perspective, which currently is a blind spot in diplomacy. Apart from innovative initiatives like the Global Diplomacy Lab, it is hard to find non-white, female, or working-class voices in the foreign policy discourse.
Kristina, born in the German town of Reckendorf, is a campaign consultant, feminist, and co-founder and Director of the Centre for Feminist Foreign Policy (CFFP). The center is based in London and currently launching its Berlin office.
The CFFP is a research and advocacy organization trying to blend foreign policy and feminism. It uses feminist foreign policy as a framework that takes on a deeper analysis of global issues like security concerns.
Next year, Germany will become a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC). Kristina Lunz considers this an opportunity for her home country to push forward a more feminist foreign policy, for example, by continuing the current Swedish foreign policy in the UNSC.
