Alumna Kristina Lunz named one of Forbes Magazine's '30 under 30'


St Cross alumna Kristina Lunz (MSc Global Governance and Diplomacy, 2014) has been placed in Forbes magazine's prestigious '30 under 30' list for Europe.
The '30 under 30' list is the business magazine's annual showcase of 30 influential young people across 10 categories, describing those honoured as 'young disruptors' who are 'bringing new ideas to the old world'. 

Kristina, together with her colleague Marissa Conway, also named on the list, founded the Centre for Feminist Foreign Policy (CFFP) in 2016, a research and advocacy organisation based in London and Berlin. Kristina is the head of the German branch of the organisation. A feminist foreign policy offers an alternative and intersectional rethinking of foreign policy from the viewpoint of women's and marginalised groups, and provides a lens through which hierarchical global systems of power can be interrogated. Whilst feminist perspective has been implemented in academic scholarship, policy practice is falling behind - CFFP aims to draw lessons from key critical scholarships into tangible policy developments, and make discussion around foreign policy more accessible and democratic.
