Leonie Stamm has been a research fellow at DGAP since November 2021. She works on topics related to feminist foreign policy, especially its implementation in a German context, and heads the study groups “Strategic Issues,” “European Policy,” and – in cooperation – “Global Challenges.”
Previously, Leonie Stamm worked at the Körber Foundation in the department of international affairs, where she was involved in the Berlin Foreign Policy Forum and the Körber Policy Game, as well as the Körber Strategic Stability Initiative, where she worked on new ideas and approaches to the topics of strategic stability and the future of arms control.
In her studies, she focused on European and international foreign and security policy, as well as on feminist foreign policy, gender and security, and the Women, Peace and Security Agenda. Previous activities led her to the Schwarzkopf Foundation Young Europe, the Expert Council on Integration and Migration and the Cairo office of the German Academic Exchange Service.
Six out of 10 Germans have never heard of the term “feminist foreign policy” or don't know what it means. Therefore, the concept must be communicated in a way that is understandable to a broader public.
