Professor Fionnuala Ni Aolain Nominated for Award

12 March 2012: Professor Fionnuala Ni Aolain has been nominated for the 2013 University of Louisville Grawemeyer Award for Ideas Improving World Order for her latest book, On the Frontlines: Gender, War, and the Post-Conflict Process, co-authored with Dina Francesca Haynes and Naomi Cahn (Oxford, 2011). The distinguished award honoring powerful ideas that could lead to a more just world order was first given in 1988. On the Frontlines explores whether recent attention paid in the peace-making process to issues of sexual violence and discrimination has improved the lives of women in post-conflict states who have suffered the consequences of violence and gender oppression. The Award will be announced at the end of 2012.
