PSRP researcher, Professor Monica McWilliams (TJI), features in a BBC report on the Syrian peace talks that are currently taking place in Geneva.
There are only three women in the Genevan negotiations committee, alongside fifteen men. Professor McWilliams is delivering training sessions to these women as part of the peace process, as part of a team of specialists who are on hand to advise on a whole range of issues. The participation of local women from the outset of negotiations on Syria is seen as a vital component of establishing a lasting deal.
