Prof. Fionnuala Ní Aoláin Quoted in RTE about the UN's Appeal to Taliban Over Ban on Women in Education and NGO Work

Prof. Fionnuala Ní Aoláin was interviewed and quoted in RTE, Ireland's TV and radio news media, about the United Nations appeal to the Taliban over its recent ban of women and girls in secondary schools and its ban on women NGO workers in Afghanistan. Prof. Ní Aoláin said that the UN alone won't be enough to move the needle on change. "There are resources, political capacities, perhaps some carrots and very few sticks that the UN can use. But really what's required is political commitment by states to support and engage with the UN and the de facto authorities," she said.
