Kristina Lunz thinks peace, human rights and justice together with foreign policy and wants to initiate a paradigm shift: Kristina Lunz counters power play and military muscle games with mediation in peace negotiations, feminist power analyses and climate justice. Realpolitik is exchanged for utopias, and there are as many women ambassadors as there are ambassadors.

Kristina Lunz’s core message is therefore: “No peace without feminism.”
