Peace and Gender is a podcast where we meet the people who dedicate their lives to help others, through action and research, in the field of gender, peace and security.
Dr Sara Niner is an expert in the field of gender and development and has spent her life working on issues in the post-conflict environment of Timor-Leste, and has provided specialist in-country advice on gender issues, for international agencies.
Dr Sara Niner will tell us about how she became interested in Timor-Leste as she travelled through the country as a backpacker, she tells us about the tragic massacre that took place without her even knowing, and about her work, trying to help the women who were rendered invisible during the conflict.
