Responding to calls for the EU to adopt a Feminist Foreign Policy (FFP), Katharine A. M. Wright, Roberta Guerrina, Toni Haastrup and Annick Masselot argue that a simple ‘add women and stir’ approach is meaningless and possibly counterproductive unless it tackles, at the same time, historical and current patterns of exclusion and oppression
Professor of Law, University of Canterbury, New Zealand
Annick's research interests focus upon European Union and comparative law, specifically with regards to gender equality and equal treatment, social and employment law, reconciliation between work and family life, pregnancy and maternity rights. Her expertise on the achievement of gender equality represents a primary reference point and has both shaped the field conceptually as well as impacted directly on policy making, especially in the fields of reconciliation between work and family life, and pregnancy and maternity rights in the context of employment law and social policy. She has also researched and written extensively on the interconnection between gender equality and a wide breadth of law and societal areas, including corporate and financial governance; international trade negotiations; diversity in the sciences; aid and development; disaster risk management; democratisation, intersectional disadvantages and gender mainstreaming.
