Disarmament and non-proliferation issues are not “just for men”, female participants at a UN peace forum in Austria are learning.
They are relevant just as much today as they were during the Cold War Era, says Juliette Kohler of the UN Office on Disarmament Affairs (UNODA).
The “Women Higher Education for Peace” event is the first of its kind, offering a platform for these women to meet experts in the field and network.
It’s also part of a wider initiative called “Women Scholarship for Peace” which provides training courses for women from the Global South.
Ms Kohler spoke to Jocelyne Sambira on the line from Vienna.
