In the final episode of the season, we bring you a fascinating conversation between Major General Maureen O’Brien, the Deputy Military Adviser in the United Nations Office of Military Affairs, Department of Peace Operations and Dr. Robert Egnell, a senior fellow with the Security Studies Program and the Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security. General O’Brien’s extensive career began over forty years ago when she joined the Irish Defense Forces as one of only six women at the time. The two of them discuss her position as a pioneer throughout her career, the challenges women still face in the military and the pursuit of full inclusion and meaningful participation of women in peacekeeping.
