The debate on the participation and role of women in international affairs is a prominent one. Over the last few years, it has been raised at the national, European, and global level. Scholars, politicians, activists, and journalists are pointing at the many imbalances in the representation and perception of women in international affairs.

The School of International Studies (SIS) of the University of Trento wants to add its voice to this debate by summoning a series of talks in which SIS members will present the biographies of some prominent women who played and are playing a pivotal role in global affairs. While not exhaustive, the talks will shed light on some of the most remarkable contributions by women in the fields of diplomacy, economics, politics, and activism.

The webinar talks are scheduled on Fridays at 17.30.
