Another kind of war

LSE public lecture

Margot Wallström, former United Nations Special Representative of the Secretary-General (SRSG) on Sexual Violence in Conflict visits LSE to deliver a lecture on Another kind of war. Being a weapon of choice in modern conflict, sexual violence has come to occupy a place high on the modern, international peace and security agenda. Describing the changing nature of conflict, Ms. Wallström will in her lecture address key challenges in the fight against this scourge.

Margot Wallström is a former member of parliament, cabinet minister of Sweden and diplomat. Prior to holding the position as the first-ever SRSG on Sexual Violence in Conflict, she served for ten years as European Commissioner: 1999-2004 as Environment Commissioner, and 2004-2010 as Vice President and Commissioner for Institutional Relations and Communication Strategy in the Barroso Commission. She is currently the chairman of Lund University in Sweden.
