A special issue of the National Security Journal was launched at Parliament in June, focusing on women’s perspectives on defence and security.
It covers diverse topics such as women’s voice in policing, counter-terrorism law in New Zealand, and relations between police and Syrian refugees in Wellington.
It is the latest (volume three, issue one) of the National Security Journal and is dedicated to the work of women researchers associated with Massey’s Centre for Defence and Security Studies. Guest editor is Dr Negar Partow, a Senior Lecturer in the centre and an expert in Middle East politics, religion, human rights and global security.
Speaking at the launch, Dr Partow said she has supervised research by many “amazing women who have devoted their lives and expertise in bettering our lives and organisations.”
