Her doctoral project at the Transitional Justice Institute is under the rubric of Gender, Justice, and Security –part of the Research Hub on Gender, Justice and Security (GCRF).
Her PhD project focuses on the Women, Peace, and Security (WPS) agenda, a global agenda composed by a set of 10 resolutions, crafted under the UN Security Council, and aimed to mainstream gender in peace and security.
