Abstract [en]

Feminism as a tool has lately been used more frequently by governments and institutions, but has been criticized for only representing a Western point of view which has ignored perspectives of women in the so-called Global South. This thesis aims to investigate if Canada, in its recently launched Canada’s Feminist International Assistance Policy, describe women in developing countries from a Western view or if they have incorporated a postcolonial perspective in their policy. By applying a feminist postcolonial theory on Canada’s feminist development policy and with the inspiration of Norman Fairclough’s critical discourse analysis, a shift in in the creation of subject positions of women in developing countries was noticed. The concluding remark emphasize that Canada should keep the postcolonial thought in mind while exercising their policy in the field of development in order to gain trust in the feminist belief.
