​​The Feminist Foreign Policy Group (FFP+) operates primarily in New York and works in conjunction with both civil society and the UN to promote feminist and gender-transformative approaches within multilateralism and foreign policy. A cross-regional grouping that brings together countries around the world with feminist foreign policies and also other countries with feminist-inspired policies. 

This Group was created in 2021 at the initiative of Spain and Sweden and membership application is open to all Member States that share the Group's mission and principles. Current members of FFP+ are: Albania, Argentina, Belgium, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, France, Germany, Israel, Liberia, Luxembourg, Mexico, Mongolia, the Netherlands, Rwanda, Spain and Tunisia.

The Group's chairmanship rotates on a yearly basis in order to promote the inclusion and engagement of all members. In its co-chairing role, Spain will be responsible for drafting a work programme, organising and chairing the Group's meetings, organising meetings, and ensuring the ongoing communication, dialogue and dissemination of the Group's initiatives. 

It is worth recalling that, in 2021, the Spanish Government ratified the Strategy for Foreign Action 2021-2024 as well as the Feminist Foreign Policy Guide: Promoting Equality in Spain's External Action. These two policy documents are both committed to the active promotion of gender equality as a cross-cutting principle and a priority of Spanish foreign action, in coherence with Organic Law 3/2007 on the Effective Equality of Women and Men and Law 2/2014 on State Action and Foreign Service, and consistent with the Third Strategic Plan for the Effective Equality of Women and Men (PEIEMH) 2022-2025.
