Celebrating Hertie Women – Prof. Dr. Marina Henke

This recording is part of a new endeavour at the Governance Post, the Shaping Tomorrow podcast. The motto of the Hertie School is ‘Understanding Today, Shaping Tomorrow’. With this podcast, we aim to talk to tomorrow’s policymakers to get their views on all that concerns our world today.

In this episode, Natalie Petit talks with Prof. Dr. Marina Henke, the Director for the Center for International Security at the Hertie School. They talk about the challenges that women face in policy-making fields, particularly within the International Security community and their ideas on how these can be overcome.
