AbstractThis thesis explores the grounds of Feminist Foreign Policy (FFP) and its linkages to gender equality. The work aims to contribute to a better understanding of the concept of Feminist Foreign Policy and explores the potential disparities between its theoretical foundations and its translation into nation-state concepts. For this purpose, official government documents of two FFP-countries and two non-FFP-countries are compared in their substantive foreign policy preferences. Employing a qualitative content analysis, the documents will be coded and analysed. Subsequently, the findings will be contextualised within the existing literature. The finding of this work is that Feminist Foreign Policy has the potential to promote greater gender equality, however it may also serve just as a mere label. The extent of its positive impact depends on how states interpret the concept, the coherence of their policy choices, and the objectives they pursue.
