This event sheds light on the unit level of analysis within the foreign policy framework and more specifically on the role of women in foreign policy making. The understanding of foreign policy within war zones and contexts of struggle bears particular interest for the scholarship as it requires a more on the ground approach of the challenges that are intertwined with the decision-making process. Thus, the FPWG celebrates International Women’s Day and invites Mrs Ahmed, the President of the Executive committee of Syrian Democratic Council, with the aim to comprehend foreign policy through the aspect of the actor and more importantly her own experiences in non-traditional forms of policymaking. The event will also offer valuable insights into the current political situation in the region.
Mrs Îlham Ahmed (President of the Executive committee of Syrian Democratic Council)
Dr Natalie Martin (The University of Nottingham)
Dr Charountaki Marianna Senior Lecturer in International Politics (University of Lincoln)
