War Studies Podcast

The War Studies podcast brings you world-leading research from the School of Security Studies, the largest community of scholars in the world dedicated to the study of all aspects of security, defence and international relations.

We aim to explore the complex realm of conflict and uncover the challenges at the heart of navigating world affairs and diplomatic relations, because we believe the study of war is fundamental to understanding the world we live in and the world we want to live in.

Our latest episode: Women leaders in health and conflict

Globally, there are very few women in leadership positions in healthcare and peacebuilding in areas of armed conflict – but why is this the case?

Why are women a key part of healthcare & peacebuilding? What barriers do women face in accessing leadership roles? And what can we do to tackle this?

In this episode, we speak with a team of researchers about their recently published policy brief, ‘An untapped potential: Women’s leadership in health in conflict and peacebuilding’. They give vital insight into some of the biggest issues facing women and peacebuilding, and highlight the emerging relationship between women’s leadership, healthcare, and peace in conflict-affected settings.
