Women and Public Diplomacy: How a small country had a large impact on an international humanitarian crisis

In August 2021, Albania took in over 3,000 Afghan evacuees, seeking safety from the new Taliban regime.

In this Luce Lecture, Dr Odeta Barbullushi explains the interplay between foreign policy decision-making, humanitarian crisis, and state identities. Drawing from her own experience, Dr Barbullushi reflects on women's contributions to international mediation as well as the role of education in shaping decision making in foreign policy.
