Feminist foreign policy : the case of Mexico

Abstract : Mexico’s adoption of a feminist foreign policy (FFP) presents implications at international and domestic levels. The prospects of this FFP are considerably high, especially if the policy strikes congruence with the domestic policy. However, existing critique suggests possible loopholes, which may render the FFP ineffective in achieving its objectives. This study aims to evaluate the capacity of a foreign policy to regulate Mexico's gender equality gaps, considering the tremendous failure of its domestic policy to achieve this gender equality regulation. The study employs three theoretical perspectives to explore the basics of Mexican feminist foreign policy. The proponents of feminist theory provide a background overview of the roots of inequality in Mexico and solutions to the inequity. The principles of constructivism theory explore Mexico's understanding of its identity and interest. The theory also explains Mexico's social construction of the meaning of issues like gender inequality that the FFP seeks to address. Globalization approaches to feminism and feminist policies lay out a framework for synthesizing the gender injustices related to globalization. The study employs qualitative research principles supported by the proponents of critical theory. An explorative research design will be adopted to explore historical and thematic literature on the study. The data will be analysed through codes and sorted into theme/code categories to draw meaning.
