Fulbright New Zealand Good Works Alumni Series 2022
On Tuesday 22nd February at 2pm (NZ time) former Axford Fellow and retired US Air Force Colonel Cornelia Weiss gave a fascinating online seminar about her evolving research on what she calls “gender strategies” within militaries, including the New Zealand military’s gender strategy for peace for Bougainville.
Cornelia Weiss received an Ian Axford Fellowship in 2012 where she researched the New Zealand military’s approach to respecting human rights. Her policy recommendations while on award led to the creation of New Zealand’s first National Action Plan to align with the United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 that reaffirms the crucial role of women in the prevention and resolution of conflicts.
