📖We know that exam season is right around the corner and - especially if you’re in first year - you may be feeling worried, or stumped as to how to tackle these next few weeks.

⭐️⭐️This is a great opportunity to come along and chat to us and other members about what worked well for them/study tips - or just attending to vary your day of studying in a new location with some new people!

📚If you take Politics, IR or other subjects with the School of Social and Political science we think you could get some real benefits from attending since many of us will have been in your exact position a year or two ago! Or you may meet a new study buddy taking your course 👼🏻👼🏻

📍We will be in Pleasance from 5-6pm this Friday with a coffee, tea or snack in hand to get studious and ace these next few weeks! Hope to see you all there

🙌🏻🙌🏻Thank you to everyone who came along on Sunday to hear Sarah and Padraig’s insights on being a diplomat! It was such a pleasure have them call in from Indonesia and great to hear about how they got into their careers, and the changes that have happened throughout their time in the foreign office.

‼️‼️Attached here are just a few of the interesting points they delved into during our event - have a read if you missed it/want to remember some highlights from the day!

👏👏Again a massive thank you to both of them for making this event a hug success and to both committees from WIPIR and DiploSoc for all the hard effort👏👏

‼️We’ve got an exciting joint event happening next week with 2 high-profile diplomats, Sarah Tiffin and Paidrag Francis. ‼️

Sarah Tiffin is the UK Ambassador to ASEAN, and the first woman to this position, and Paidrag Francis is the Irish Ambassador to Indonesia.

Sarah and Paidrag have both had impressive careers within the foreign office with a wealth of knowledge about South East Asian diplomacy and their own British/Irish experiences working in the field. They will be joining us live from their posts in Indonesia so come along next Sunday the 19th November from 12.30-2pm to hear their unique insights and ask them all about their roles.

🎟️If you are a member of Women in PIR Society or Diplomacy Society tickets are only £2, and for

Hi everyone! We had the opportunity to join the Scottish Women’s Convention for their International Women’s Day even at Parliament last month ❤️

It was a unique and wonderful experience – we thoroughly enjoyed listening to those that spoke, hearing about their experiences, and also learning about how change can be brought forth.

An enormous thank you to for organising the event and inviting us to join!

What is the role of gender in security studies? How do gendered perspectives of wartime contribute to the assessment of global security? How does gender analysis inform our understanding of women’s experiences in war?

On this International Women’s Day, .ua and WIPIR invite you to join our discussion with Dr. Claire Duncanson on genderering security and harms of war. The discussion will be followed by a screening of a Ukrainian documentary film, centred around the experiences of 6 women in the midst of ongoing war.

Can’t wait to see you on 13th📣

Last month, WIPIR had the opportunity to join the Scottish Women’s Convention for their Housing Priorities Conference in Glasgow!

It was a fantastic opportunity to learn from the insights of dedicated, passionate and hardworking women – all of whom are making change in their communities. We learned about the diverse struggles of Scottish women and what changes need to be made to ensure a better future for all.

You’re invited to join WIPIR in attending the Scottish Women’s Housing Priorities Conference! The event will be held this upcoming Saturday, February 4 at the Glasgow Grosvenor Hotel. The event will run from 11:00am to 1:00pm and will host a speaker-led discussion on housing in Scotland, looking at the issues which surround housing and what elements are important to women.

The event is run by the Scottish Women’s Convention (SWC), set up by the Scottish Executive in 2003 in recognition of the need to ensure women's voices reached policy makers. The SWC works to ensure that women throughout Scotland have an opportunity to be involved in activities and events. The information gathered is reported to key decision makers at both a local and national level. Working across Scotland, the SWC seeks to illustrate real women's views, experiences and concerns on key policy areas.

Anyone is welcome to join and we would love to have you all! It is a unique opportunity to get involved, first-hand with Scottish politics and to get to know fellow women in politics!
