Lecture at “London School of Economics and Political Science”

Two events in a row wasn’t enough for Angelina, she also had time to go to lead a lecture in London on Monday. She gave a seminar to students taking the Masters Course in Women, Peace and Security at the London School of Economics and Political Science. Angelina is is serving as a visiting professor in practice.

The class is part of a series of extra-curricular seminars called “Women, Peace and Security In Practice,” which are designed to give students an insight into the realities of working on gender equality in conflict-affected settings.

Besides speaking about her work as an UNHCR Special Envoy and as co-founder of the Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative (PSVI), Jolie took questions from the students on everything from the importance of accountability for human rights violations against women in conflict to the link between violence against women and gender inequality.

A source close to Jolie tells PEOPLE, ”She found it very helpful to be able to sit with the students and debate different concerns for women internationally, and different views on ways forward. She hopes not just to be able to teach them, but also to work with them in the months to come, to shape ideas together on ways to improve the global situation for women.”
