C3S Issue Map 001/2019

C3S has launched the Issue Map initiative. The reports under this series analyse the status and developments of current scenarios in detail. They attempt to aid the reader to get a more comprehensive idea of the issue being addressed, along with illustrations and data. Issue Maps are available for download as PDFs.

The objective of this Issue Map is to understand and analyse the prospects for China adopting a semblance of feminism in its foreign policy. The recent move by Sweden to declare an official feminist foreign policy has put the political status of women in China and other countries under the lens.

In this Issue Map, an analysis of the potential for China to adopt a feminist foreign policy will be conducted.
